I haven't looked at the library, but just want to comment on the name. Is
"tween" some kind of standard term? Because I'm only familiar with it in
the context of the first wikipedia result when searching for "tween" or
"tweener", and I don't see anything regarding interpolation save for
"inbetweening" (standard animation term). Something like
Boost.Interpolation might better convey the library's intent, I think.
