Maybe what makes me happiest about Loki is that it's at the opposite
spectrum of frameworks - components are lean and mean, and can be
used in total separation, yet can be put together to work in higher
level structures. (This is due to type independence - Loki considers
fixed types as bad as regular programming considers hardcoded

A piecewise submittal makes a lot of sense. It's only a couple of
amenities that are used throughout all of the lib: typelists, traits.
I think I should submit those first.

Alas, for now I'm overwhelmed with working on the book. Maybe later...
