Hi Brian,

I've just finished (minus docs) a new version of Phoenix, which
will be the basis of the phoenix-LL merger planned a long time ago.
{{To those who are interested, it's in the Spirit CVS, PHOENIX_V2
branch}}. I'd be very much interested in collaborating with you.
I think the best route is to build on top of a common core.
Phoenix-2 is already built on top of MPL and Fusion (tuples +
algorithms). The way I see it, there are lots of commonality
between LL/Phx and FC++ that can be fused into a core:

     | LL/Phx | FC++ |
     | FP core |
     | Fusion |
     | MPL |

Tell me what you think. FC++ has been very influential in my style
of programming. I'd be honored to help make FC++ a part of boost
