I would be interested in seeing some "bounded value" utility in boost.

I saw that you only planned one week of discussions on this developers list.
If you really plan on getting your library accepted you probably need to
spend a lot more "absolute time" discussing it. After you have a fairly good
implementation and documentation you can submit it for a formal review, see Unfortunately it can take
several months from review submission until the formal review begins. Still,
even if you don't have the time to get your library into boost, someone else
can pick up where you left off and get it boostified.

So I hope you try :) Have you found any older C++ implementations?
