And for me too. The tools that I write using Spirit makes the library
stronger. And this does not distract me from my focus. It's just the
way I work. I build tools to make tools and I test them using real tools;
not just toys and examples bundled together adhoc. With this approach, I
have authored 3 major libraries already. 2 of which are already accepted
into boost. These tools are built on top of each other. For me, I see no
distinction between tools and libraries. There may be for others, and
perhaps for you, but please don't force that definition upon us.
