What does everyone imagine the MPL type_list is if not a primitive
Loki-style type-list? There are a few minor differences in interface,
but in construction they are basically identical. The MPL type_list
isn't based on std::pair, but you wouldn't want that anyway (some useful
type lists couldn't even be instantiated if that were the case).
