Anyone know of a open source layout manager for C++? Ideally very lightweight, and not as part of a larger GUI library (unless it can be easily used standalone).

By layout manager, I mean something like this Java stuff here:

I think a layout manager / sizer implementation is always going to be bound to a specific GUI library ... at least I don't see how you could just make it work with any random GUI interface.
Anyway, both wxWidgets and Qt support layout managers like the ones you linked to, but both fail to meet the requirement you imposed, i.e. neither work independently of their respective GUI kits.

It shouldn't be too hard to write your own if you can't find an independent one. It's just arranging with constraints; there's examples on Google if you search with your thread title.
