If Kornel's GSoC proposal ends up being geared towards extending ggl
3D functionality (which I think would be great), perhaps you and Bruno
Lalande could serve as co-mentors for the project? I think something
similar was done in the past with Mariano Gabriel Consoni working on
Jeremy Pack's Extension / Reflection library - the official Boost
mentor was Hartmut Kaiser but Jeremy was also involved in some
Boost list run by bdawes at acm.org, gregod at cs.rpi.edu, cpdaniel at pacbell.net, john at johnmaddock.co.uk
