This seems to be Andrei's primary complaint: that MPL offers facilities
that people don't need, and these require complexity that he doesn't
want to pay for. Perhaps if you could describe some places where
a simpler typelist is not sufficient, you guys could come to some
agreement on whether the additional complexity is justified.
