It seems that a lot of functionality could be proposed: snmp,
configuration, log, clustering facilities (group protocols), threads,
IPC, database connectors, etc. They will turn Boost.Appliction a
framework more like a Java Application Container than a boost library.

I humbly think that a general library ideally should have a single
responsibility and be easily integrated with other libraries.

In my work I mantain a library with the oposite aproach: a framework.
It manages the startup, shutdown, pause and resume as a windows
service, a unix daemon or a console program. It provides a
configuration and a log api, and I am thinking about adding snmp
support. But the context is completely different, in my company it is
done to "force" that all aplication are written in a similar way.
