I don't intend as much, promise!  The eiffel-libraries is already a
hosted on Gna, and includes wrappers for several other libraries, so
the idea is to keep it an 'as pure eiffel as possible' project, and
leave the underlying libraries to themselves.  If you intend to use a
set of wrappers you'll need the C headers for that library installed
on your system, next door to your eiffel classes; Smarteiffel compiles
your Eiffel to C, and then you compile everything together with any C
