Surely not, but it can't be all "crap" as Paul M. likes to put it. KISS
seems a good approach, if you manage the code-base Google seems to manage.
C (with classes) is nothing to look down on, it just works.
There is no "Boost" that could enter into dialog. The guy from Google

Ok, nobody "owns" the (boost) project, which highlights the weakness of the
open source/volunteer approach (see posts on un-maintained projects).
Couldn't the hard-core boosters form a working group and join forces?
Whether this guy got/gets paid for doing so (reporting compiler bugs) is
rather irrelevant, my point is that he got M$ to take on board his issues
(I don't think M$ cares about whether he gets paid or not, as long it's not
them doing the paying).
What do YOU see as a way forward in achieving the objective of being able
to use Clang/LLVM with boost on Windows? I'm not talking about compiling
boost with Clang/LLVM (that's of minor importance I would say), I'm happy
compiling with VC, but I would like to be able to use those VC-binaries
with Clang/LLVM, i.e. the headers need to be able to deal with the
I would like to ask you to respond in terms of solutions rather than
arguing points of dis-agreement.
