Subject: [boost] request for comments in a new format library

Dear boost community,
some time ago I announced a format library I'm working on. I think at that
time it was still too incipient for one to evaluate whether it looked
promising, thought some few but very useful observation were made ( one
regarding i18n and other code bloat ) that made me change many things.
Now the library is more evolved and I think it will be ready for review
somewhere in the second half of this year, if no big change happens.
This is a c++14 text format library with some unique features:
- designed to be utf8 friendly
- easy to extend for new destination types ( like some different string
- able to align (justify) a set of sub-arguments as one ( see joins
- it enables the use of translations tools ( like gettext ), yet the
formatting is not specified by a format string. And the problem with format
strings that they lead to run time errors (instead of compilation error )
when they are incorrect.
âHence I much appreciate any comments, especially if can identify any flaw
I didn't realize.
