My response sounded harsh. What I think I meant is what is stopping
someone from creating a Boost-compatible and Boostesque wrapper for
DirectX? Why must it be part of the Boost libraries?

As a side note, I think a better strategy would be to create a DirectX
wrapper that is isomorphic to Managed DirectX (API), though, to ease
the transition and porting from/to .NET and XNA.
