In your case, one of the first things you can do is to compare your library
with the Boost.Tree (not official) in the sandbox
( and see how your
library compares with.

A quick look at your documentation let me think that there is not a

It is usual that the people proposing new libraries to Boost uses the Boost
Build system and that the documentation looks like the already accepted
libraries. Most of the people use now quickbook for the documentation (some
use doxigen for the reference section).

I think that Boost.Tree is orphaned so maybe you could see how to make a
