You're welcome. Though 8 minutes is still too long. I'm working on that.

I know. That is why I have some alternative mechanics, such as file-iteration,
on the table. On my computer, which is a paltry 600 MHz P3, it takes me 7
minutes just to preprocess that 'factory.hpp' file. I'm thinking that with file
iteration I can bring that time down to less than 15 seconds.
