Personally speaking, I'd be very interested in a library which
provided a generic binary format parsing (and optionally generating)
solution, one backend of which might be ELF. A purely ELF specific,
non-generic library is perfectly useful, but for me personally
probably not a great fit for the Boost libraries without having a
highly generic and abstract API in front of it so code written
against it need not know much about ELF.
