This is not (yet) a review.

I'm looking at MSM and its documentation, for the purpose of review, and
I consider it very useful and interesting.

First I thought (intuitively) that the eUML was meant for output, but
apparently that is not the case, it is an embedded language for defining
state machines, right. However, the documentation contains a lot of
state machine drawings. For library users, that can be useful too. So it
might make sense to relate (or export) a state machine to a Boost.Graph?
If that is done, a drawing can be made easily using graphviz. Maybe not
as fancy, but at least you see what you're doing :-).

Is is somehow possible to export an MSM to a Boost.Graph, either within
the library, or in an example or separate utility headerfile?

Regards, Barend
