I wrote a library which implements the "non derivable" semantics, which is
natively supported by some programming languages such as Java or C#.
I believe it is mature for a submission and I request everybody for a
feedback about the library itself.
I could test it only witch GCC 4.1 but it seems to be 100% standard
I published the library in the Vault under the folder "Generic Programming"
with the name "nonderivable.zip".
I know that in the vault there is a similar library (called
"noninheritable") but one must consider that:
1) it uses a different idiom (private constructor and friend
2) it uses non standard features, while my implementation aims to be
100% standard compliant
3) it uses a different syntax
4) at least my request could increase the interest about that library
Suppose you want to define a final class Foo, then you have to write
class Foo : BOOST_NON_DERIVABLE
