GAlib and neural networks

Has someone on this list tried using GAlib on neural networks?

What I had in mind was, using the NN weights as the genome.
And to determine the fitness of a NN, simply have the NN do
some conventional NN-learning, and then testing the NN's fault-rate.

A more advanced aproach would also encode the geometry of the
NN (nr of neurons and the connections) in the genome.

I am looking for NN software that has a similar ease of use
as GAlib, comes as C++ source, and interfaces nicely with GA.
Any suggestions?

Many thanks,
