Boost :

Considering the fact that some of the Boosters work on the GUI library,
I would like to throw something to the mix:

This library uses some template techniques, especially in those places
where GUI integrates with C++ (callbacks, variable binding, etc.).
As a result, the library is highly generic, uses some of the Boost,
should be compatible the rest of Boost and may benefit from further

Anyway - please note that the concepts used in this library (well, and
in Tcl/Tk which is used as an underlying engine) are very different from
what normally comes to mind when we think "GUI programming". In
particular, this library is not object-based and does not use RAII at
all (apart from a couple of places which are not related to GUI), but
somehow still manages to "keep the shape". It may help to put some
things in perspective.

Your comments are welcome,
