I'm going to spend some time looking at it. Maybe wxWindows could be
bottom layer of our implementation. It would give us more time to focus
on the more interesting parts of our library.

I'm afraid we may regret it later if the library is not all boost. For
one thing, I don't think the LGPL is compatible with boost license
