The license on IT++ appears to be GPLv2.

If wrapping IT++ code with GNU Radio blocks is as straightforward as
you say, it may be worth it to create a new, optional top-level
component in gnuradio, say "gr-itpp", that provides wrappers for some
of the more useful bits.  This wouldn't include any IT++ code itself;
the component would just require having IT++ already installed as a
build/runtime dependency.  (For people not interested, it just
wouldn't get configured for build at configure time.)

I would encourage those on the list here to discuss the idea further,
with an aim to figuring out what the "low-hanging fruit" would be.

If there is enough interest, I can create a skeleton top-level
component as a basis for patch submission.
