I do not think one can just add to another library, even if one does something which in itself is an addition/extension to another library's implementation, without the other library programmer's approval. If it were decided that the VMD library were to become a part of Boost PP, and Paul Mensonides approved that, I would have no problem making it so.

IMO you should ask Paul (directly off-list) before the review to see if this is an option. True it couldn't be added without his permission.
