This might invoke some screaming: I would love to have a GUI library that
could wrap .NET's Forms (using Managed C++.)

I know that Boost is supposed to be a library for standard C++, but there
has been room for pragmatism to accomodate compiler limitations. I just
wondered if there could be a tiny little room for this particular
"limitation" of C++ ;-)

Maybe one should start a list for "Boost in Managed C++," which could host
.NET Framework interactions as well? I might be the only one actually using
Boost for Managed C++, but a list of one is better than a list of none...
