Why seems fine the way it is?

I think it's interesting. I'm not sure being tied only to property tree only
is the ideal. It would be interesting to figure what concepts are required
for use with an output template. Perhaps there should be alternate binding
mechanisms where say vector<string> could be bound to users.
Obviously there's lots of holes to fill, but I would like to see something
like this in Boost at some point.
