This is a great idea.  We'll definitely give this a shot, but rather
than tying it to spread directly, we'll give it a go with our own C++
work, rather than trying to port Spread and then recreate the work.  The
idea of having a uniform set of our Spread-based objects in Python, PHP,
and C++ without maintaining three codebases is *very* appealing.

Thanks for the suggestion!
