Yep, you've pretty much got the bones of the completed GSoC idea
there Louis, and interesting how there is no Hana in there. I like
how it only took you a few hours rather than a summer!
If only GSoC students like you came along every year ... my word
would we make some amazing progress in Boost libraries. Anyway, I
still reckon if a student completes in a summer what took you a few
hours (much of the summer will go on writing tests and docs of
course) then I would be very pleased with that student. You were and
still are very unusual Louis.
