I'ld be happy to help here. I'm using a slightly modified early version of a
similar library (initially written by Vladimir Prus, here:
http://tinyurl.com/3xeqzr) for quite some time now and I think we need
something related in Boost! A good starting point would be an analysis of
the existing libraries to be able to define a suitable API and the related
functionality (Jeffs mentioned boost.extension already containing a good
overview). I think the required effort to write such a library makes it a
good candidate for SoC.
