I wonder if it would be a good idea to write a C++ tutorial that
incorporates Boost from the ground up. Teach dynamic memory? Teach smart
pointers along with it. And so on. I'm personally convinced that the
standard library should be taught as a part of the C++ language itself
(i.e. don't even attempt to teach C-style strings until you're through
with pointer principles; instead teach std::string), and given the
nature of many Boost libraries, this just seems like a natural extension
of that principle.
