I like boost as a playground for future C++ standard libraries, until
then I don't want people
having a dependency if I can avoid it. The only part I might need from
boost was quite easy
to do by myself, and also it was a good exercise.

Reinvent the wheel is a good way to learn :) by the way I've been
playing with wrappers (and SLB) for years, this is the third big
revision, and it's been growing from a very simple thing (just one
header everything inline for little things) to a not so little library
lot of control over classes.
