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.

if during the review the majority of others feel that the library should
be part of Boost PP, I am certainly willing to do that. But I really do
not see the purpose of doing that beforehand.
