Come on, folks, let us face it: we are about to have two *very* similar FSM libraries here, so it should be fair to ask whether one is - feature-wise - better* than the other. No? We do not have this much overlap in any other library w.r.t. features and interface. We have the Spirit/Regex overlap, but that overlap is only partial, and Spirit handles more while Regex handles the intersection (arguably) in a simpler manner. Definitely simpler for developers not used to embedded DSLs in C++.

This seems much like the discussion just had exhaustively about the
geometry libraries, and I don't suspect that it will be anymore
fruitful. I, for one, wouldn't mind skipping it if it's all the same to
anyone else! <grin;>
