     this metadata is hardcoded to the types it wants. This needs to be made generic. Perhaps use boost::any or maybe
     an additional key/value pair component would work. Either way, it would be nice to try to keep the auto-selection of
     metadata that already exists in the system.
- 2) Extra Type Specification: There has to be a way to derive the type from the functions when you call add_property.
- It is really ugly to have to specify it every time.
     2) Algorithms: We currently only have one path based search algorithm. This expects a single matching value and
     throws otherwise. This is a useful search algorithm as is, but we need more. We need one that returns iterators

     6) Documentation: We currently have doxygen documented objects for this code. If we are going to submit to boost, we

     Discussion Points:
     1) Header Files: I'm distributing this as header only. I did this since it simplified initial distribution (I didn't have
     to get bjam working right away). In house, we build a library. There a lot of things that can be hidden from the user,
- including defineing the static instances of the singeltons, if we use a library.

     2) Right now we have several different begin/end function pairs in property_group for accessing the different data in
     the system. Is that really the best way to do it? Whould we be passing back const references to the collections instead?
