GearBox is not a framework. It does not contain any "glue" code to help you assemble a complete system.
GearBox does not compete with any existing or future frameworks. Frameworks are still and will continue to be required to customize the available software to a particular application. But the task of designing and implementing a framework is hard enough without having to worry about the nitty-gritty of algorithm and driver implemention.
More on the rationale and the objectives for the project can be found in GearBox Publications.
