I didn't want to overpromise what is there and what it can do.

There is also the question of buy in. If the community buys into
APIBind, then it's worth finishing it to Boost quality standards. If
there isn't the interest, then it can remain as a personal private
library standalone modularity toolkit only I use.

tl;dr; If other people start using APIBind then I'll see plenty of
reason to finish it. Otherwise I don't know if I'm solving a problem
anyone else has.
