FWIW, I'd vote my support for xpressive. I'd vote that it be
added to the boost libraries. The question some people ask is why
have an alternative library that overlaps over existing
libraries in boost (i.e. Boost.Regex and Spirit). I'd say
that we should always welcome alternative libraries. I do not
see anything from our Boost Library Requirements and Guidelines
that prohibits alternative designs and implementations. I'd
give xpressive consistent As in terms of design, implementation,
documentation and potential usefulness. For me, that's more
than enough reason for acceptance.
