Parent article: The Boost C++ Libraries
While I agree that languages usually do too much, C++ is not the solution:
1) the code used in Boost or other similar library is so complex that some compilers wouldn't compile it
2) those library are unreadable
3) sometimes this complexity cannot be hidden to the users which makes ugly code..
Have you looked at Scala? I think that this language is a step in the right direction for this part, unfortunately it is only for JVM or .Net no native compilation currently.
