Subject: [boost] Boost.GSL?

As you may or may not know, Bjarne Stroustrup, Herb Sutter, and others have
announced a new set of C++ guidelines[1] and an accompanying library[2]
that supports them. For many folks, it would be difficult to incorporate a
new library into their organizations, but there is a strong desire to make
use of the guidelines.

I floated the idea of including GSL in Boost as a distribution mechanism to
Bjarne and he said he doesn't have any objection to the idea in principle,
although he is hesitant to having to go through an extensive review process
where some of these basic structures would change.

What do you all think? Would it be appropriate and/or desirable to have a
Boost.GSL library?
