I'm talking about genetic programming. ga is simpler to implement and it
wouldn't be suitable to boost for any reason, I think.

That's not entirely the case. Standard gp is a tree rather than a
string/vector (or it's likes) in genetic algorithm. The gp tree is made
up of nodes with (mathematical) operations, and some sort of linking
between the nodes. But then again, a graph-based gp is a generalization
of the tree structure which I intend to use.
