I'd be happy to help as well, though I don't really have the experience
with boost development necessary to qualify as a mentor. I'll start by
putting together a README file for the sandbox library over the next few
days so others can get a better idea of where we might be starting from.
Aside from direct data access (and the other things I have implemented
already), what else should such a library do? One thing I can think of
off the top of my head is automatic conversion for Numpy scalar types -
I'm pretty sure someone else on this list has implemented that
somewhere, but it's not present in the sandbox library.
