Subject: [boost] [preprocessor] pp-strings

As I understand it, Boost.Preprocessor was largely based on another
preprocessor library from the same authors named CHAOS. Is this
correct? Do you know where I can find CHAOS source and its
Specifically, I am curious if CHAOS supports "pp space-separated
strings" -- i.e., macros like the followings:
PP_STRING_CAT( b o o s t ) // expand to `boost`
PP_STRING_AT(3, b o o s t ) // expand to `s`
If yes, why were these pp-strings not ported from CHAOS to Boost.Preprocessor?
Thanks a lot.
