LibAST is the Library of Assorted Spiffy Things. It contains many spiffy things, and it is a library. Thus, the ever-so-creative name. LibAST has been previously known as libmej, the Eterm helper library which nobody really understood and certainly never used. My current plan is to gradually remove some of the neat stuff from Eterm that could be made generic (things like the theme parsing engine, the command-line options parser, perhaps the event engine, ...) and place it here in the hopes that others will find them useful.
