Hi Brian,

Anyway, I just downloaded the boost version of FC++. I'm just
beginning to read and peruse the code. As you surely know,
FC++ has been one of my influences. I've studied the code
once a few years ago in its early beginnings. And how it has
grown! I still have a copy of FC++.1.2.1. I can't say enough
how much it has influenced Spirit and Phoenix.

Anyway, a quick question before anything else: How easy would
it be to decouple the FC++.1.2.1 part of the library (i.e. without
the lambda, without the sugar and spice)? If you recall, before
Spirit became a boost library, I considered using FC++ in Spirit.
One particular thing I liked was its small size. As a library
writer myself, using another library, it seems more appropriate
to hook into the lower level stuff, which in itself is already
quite useful (I recall the exact reals library, for instance;
certainly it was written prior to the sugar). I've seen you draw
an outline of the basic organization of FC++ as it is now. Which
part of this outline corresponds to the old FC++.1.2.1?
