Dear Boosters,

The Mirror library has been around for nearly a year. I would like to start
doing the preparations for getting the library ready for a formal review
and before that I would like to hear your opinions on whether this
library actually belongs to Boost and any suggestions on how to
improve it or what to change.

For those of you who are not familiar with it, Mirror is a compile-time
reflection facility with some run-time features.

The sources can be downloaded from the Vault or checked out from
the Sandbox (

Since the docs ( do not cover everything yet,
you can see the usage of several of the implemented but undocumented
 features in the test suite and in the examples (

Some people have found the Concept browser (
to be a good starting point and a useful quick reference. It, however,
requires a XSLT capable web browser. It is known to work with MSIE 7+
and Firefox 3.x.y without the need to install any other software.
