Oh, you mean adding the project to the ooRexx project? Yes, that would be the 
best! It would allow
all those who look into the ooRexx "samples\api" directories to find also this 
"nutshell" CMake project.

Enrico put his "rxSnippets" project under the BSL (boost software license), cf.
<https://opensource.org/licenses/BSL-1.0>. ooRexx is under the CPL (common 
public license), if I
understand correctly, cf. <https://opensource.org/licenses/CPL-1.0> which in 
the meantime got
superceded by the EPL (Eclipse Public license), cf. 

The question would then be whether the boost license is acceptable and 
compatible with the CPL (or
EPL for that matter). If not, whether Enrico would agree to double-license it 
by adding the CPL to
it. (Any author can assign any number of different licenses to his work.)
