Lyken17 commented on issue #7376: MXbox -- a simple and flexible vision toolbox 
for mxnet framework.

   @szha  Gluon's documentation seems to be under construction.  Could u show 
some examples of `mx.symbol`?  In fact `mxbox` provides 
[`mx.transforms.lambda`](https://github.com/Lyken17/mxbox/blob/master/mxbox/transforms/general.py#L140)
  which allows user to easily create extensions . Thus supports for `mx.symbol` 
should not be a trouble issue.
   
   @zhreshold Gluon and mxbox are both inspired by torchvision, so they have 
many same functions. What I think is to keep the relation of `mxbox` and 
`mxnet`  like `pytorch` and `torchvision` -- standalone but strongly connected. 
The advantage of doing this is people can develop `mxbox` without affecting 
`mxnet` (push to `mxbox` only), and user can always enjoy the latest update of 
mxbox from PyPi.
   
   Maintaining a standalone toolbox will not be a nightmare, instead, it will 
brings faster update -- for example, a new network comes out, I can upload to 
`mxnet` and give a release immediately, once I get the definition scripts and 
the pretrained weight. where in mxnet, it requires a reviewer to merge in and 
extra time for a new release on PyPi.
   
   We all aim for a good toolbox, and as I mentioned, my free time on next 
semester is very limited. So to merge in or not, actually depends on later 
maintainers' idea. If you all think merging to be a better choice, I will 
create a pull request after construction for `model` is finished.
