    Actually, I find the idea of a 2d Boost algorithm library
    intreaguing, more interesting than a widget wrapper library.

    When I look at how algorithms are composed in generic
    programming, the ability to compose drawing algorithms makes a
    a lot of sense.
    The ability to have the compilier hard wire a text box that
    converts to long doesn't do much for me.
