IMHO, you could roll your own to start, but the place you'd want to get 
to is Magritte. It has the needed functionality and flexibility. The 
hooks are in place to extend and override.

It may seem that it's a big framework, because of the large number of 
class categories and classes. All those classes are the result of well 
factored code. There actually are only a few concepts you need to know 
to "get it". Understand MADescription and their containers, along with 
the visitor pattern, and you've got it.
