Subject: Re: [boost] Request for Interest in several Modules

I'm also interested in those libraries, in particular in cppdb but more by
Looking at it's interface documentation I'd like to ask some minor

 1. The boost::extension author reported (when i asked him) a lack in the
C++11 standard (without precision) that makes it hard to implement
correctly this library on all platforms/compilers (unfortunately he didn't
say which ones).
Do you have any information about that?

 2. booster::shared_object::shared_object(std::string const & file_name )

    Here file_name is a path, right?
    I'm guessing it's relative to the way the OS will look for modules?

 3. Is there a specific reason that there isn't a provided abstraction
(template "helper" function) that will call resolve_symbol() and try
(dynamic or not) to cast it for you to the provided type? My understanding
is that you wanted to let the user do as he wish but I was asking myself if
common usage could be identified and provided by default.
