Vinnie - looks like something that boost should have. I took a cursory
look at the repo just to get a feel for it. My question is, as usual, a
little off topic. Did you look into using boost.spirit for parsing? I
found it very interesting and used for of for fun in parsing the xml
using by the serialization library. I a very interesting and fun job.
The whole concept of isolating the grammar from the parsing it makes
sense to me. It was one more think to learn though.

It started out as an experiment, but when I saw how it turned out, I
left it in and have been very pleased. It's been part of the
serialization library for 15 years. I don't remember having to dip back
into that code to fix anything! This is a big thing for me.

I'm not asking you to actually do anything or even respond. I just like
to keep the pot boiling.
