For testing I sometimes have code like:
std::ostream &operator <<(std::ostream &os, NullType)
template <typename Head, class Tail>
std::ostream &operator <<(std::ostream &os, TypeList<Head,Tail>)
os << typeid(Head).name() << ' ' << Tail();
I also sometimes use it to iterate through a
type list, using recursive function calls. Although
that is actually a broken-compiler issue...
