I didn't know that b2 is written in C. However, there is as it
happens relevance - AFIO's stable DLL export ABI is intentionally
designed to be C compatible such that a C API can be provided in
addition to the metaprogrammed C++ one.
I just need to get round to writing the libclang AST to C bindings
generator, that's all. Time, as always.
