Did you? You said that you found mpl complex and you preferred
a simpler implementation, but I don't recall any reason why you
wouldn't want to *use* MPL if it were available. Is there such
a big difference between writing loki::length and mpl::size that
the latter would be a problem? It's shorter for one thing. :-)
I'm sad to see this degenerate into a Loki vs MPL debate. I
would hope that if boost decides to accept MPL that wouldn't
preclude us from benefitting from all the other features of Loki.
