Script has "limiting" connotations in my mind. After all what happens when
we add bindings for other non-scripting languages like: Lisp/CLOS,
Smalltalk, Haskell, etc. And for non-language related bindings like CORBA,

Boost.Language is a thought, but too broad. Boost.Bind is taken. ;-)
Boost.Interface might work. Boost.Objects perhaps? Or Boost.ObjectBind?
