Subject: [boost] [GSoC] coerce (previously construe_cast)

Some time ago I've announced construe_cast as a library which builds
upon boost.spirit to create a cast-like operator aiming to provide an
alternative to lexical_cast providing greater speed and flexibility.
It has since been renamed to boost.coerce (it's the last rename, I
promise) and it has found its way to the boost sandbox where
development will continue. For the original email I'd like to point
you to http://boost.2283326.n4.nabble.com/construe-cast-call-for-interest-and-feedback-td2967275.html.
Due to an internship I haven't been able to get much done on this
project lately. I would still very much like to see this through and
because of this I would like to propose this as a GSoC project. There
is quite a bit to be done to get this to the level expected from a
potential boost library, however I believe I can get it in a state
where it can be reviewed within the timespan set for the GSoC.
The request for feedback stands, and please be expecting my proposal!
