Here we probably disagree. I see boost as a collection of libraries that
intent to be used in practice. Ultimately some of them may join C++
standard. Introduction of solution for no problems does not seems to fit
this. Note: I do not say that there is no problem domain, I just say that
it's imperative to figure it out first, instead of telling C++ community:
"Ok. Here is the library. If you find any use for it let us know"
