Here is my [proposal](
it do not complete yet, now you can comment it and I would like to receive
your advice.:) Also I am adding to the boost mailing list, it is my
pleasure to get comment from you. I will finished the proposal in recent
days, once I finished it I will push the draft on GSoC page.
Thanks all for your help!
