This directly concerns me because I have a lot at stake with the upcoming
Boost Interfaces Library. When it is proposed to Boost and goes through the
inevitable evolution, if it doesn't meet my rather stringent guidelines I
will be forced to create my own version of the library. Would doing so be
odious? It seems to me that if a new project is spawned, then it becomes
healthy competition for Boost and promotes technological progress.
