Nana library don't uses native widgets. And it is a huge problem. Users
will not have expected look and feel. Widgets on screenshots are awful.
Even GTK+ and Qt applications under Windows looks much better then Nana
Also Boost.UI has fluent interfaces for widget initialization, that is
much simpler for developers then Nana library approach. Nana has
unsubstantiate complex API.
