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.
