I am not a "leading developer of Boost" by any measure, but since I
don't see a "-dev" in the list address, I think I'm ok to respond. I
think that Boost could definitely use a framework for describing
constraint satisfaction problems. Actually, I think such a framework
could readily be built on top of Boost.Graph. I had planned to work
on such a library once I felt comfortable enough with C++ and the way
things are done in the Boost community, so that I don't end up
embarrassing myself too much. I'd be glad to see it, though, whether
it was my creation or not.
