Subject: [boost] Gauging interest in time code for broadcasters...

I'd like to know if anyone might take interest in a header library that
supports working with time code (as in, 01:00:00:00 which is 107892
drop-frames, or 108000 frames at 30 fps).

The library would simply convert between frames (as a long) and
boost::posix_time::time_duration types according to the kind of time code,
and would parse or output strings according to the kind of time code. From
there, you'd just leverage boost::posix_time::time_duration for any
calculations you need.

I realize this is kind of a special-interest library, but the broadcasting
field seems so wide that something like this might be useful to quite a few
people, so I thought I'd ask.
