[Brian Braatz Writes:]
I restate my suggestion ifrom the past for John to take his Win32GUI
library , boostify it, and turn it into a "min-gui" library.

THE POINT is to scope it SMALL, I.e. this is a minimal gui library, not
QT or WxWindows. Just a small thing that is cross platform but provides
simple GUI functionality for boost tools.

(similar in scope and concept the tinyxml lib buried in boost)
