Dear all,

Following our discussion of the unicode library, would it not be a good idea
to persue such efforts more aggresively?

I could imagine it would help bring forward libraries much faster. I think it
would be reasonable that
the boost comunity provided

1. project descriptions
2. help and guidelines throughout the 6-12 months of the project

If we had small papers explaining potential projects, these can be sent to
universities which can the in turn
suggest them to their students.

Off the top of my head, I can think of these projects

1. C++ database library
2. C++ statistics library
3. exact reals class
4. An XML parser and generator library

I could probably be a co-author and contact person of (2).

Any thoughts?
