I've written a little active object framework too. In fact, it was what I
was working on which led to me getting quite sidetracked on thread-safe
signals. But now that I'm wrapping that up, I should be able to release
my code soon. It works, I just haven't released it because I haven't
written any documentation yet. I basically just combined ideas from the
active object paper by Lavender, et. al., the ACE implementation, and
boost, and added some syntactic sugar. I didn't try to provide a full
active object class like you did. I provide active functions, futures,
method requests, schedulers, and it is up to the user to combine a set of
active functions with a scheduler and a servant object to produce their
own full active object.
