[Uml-devel] future of the omf

hi all,

thought i'd take some time to share some thoughts with you on the future of my 
modeling framework - and yes, it's more of a library than a framework, but 
framework sounds nice :)

anyway, i've come across a nice little technology called boost.python that 
lets me do some really, really nice stuff. like generate python dynamic 
bindings. sweet. anyway, i just thought i'd bounce some thoughts off of you 

i think, for the next couple days, i'm going to play around with a lightweight 
uml implementation written using pure boost and stl and, of course, bound to 
python. the only problem with writing it this way is that i'm going to lose 
the highly generalized type system and the reflective layer that i wrote for 
the omf. however, you should be able to use python to "simulate" the 
reflective layer because it pulls everything into it's extremely rich, well 
tested and graceful type system.

any thoughts?
