I agree. (I wouldn't mind seeing projects for all of the above, but they
definitely shouldn't be combined into one.)

I'm willing to participate, in particular, if other folks such as David
are part of such a team, too. (While I believe I understand enough of
both C++ and Python, lots of boost.python is still very obscure, so
having David being part would greatly help. May be we could take the
opportunity and collectively work on the (internal) boost.python docs, too.

David, I notice you already indicated support. Could we team up for this ?
(I will be out on vacation for about two weeks during the summer. Other
than that I should be available throughout the summer.)
