Aleksey, I'm waiting on Dave's response about the naming scheme. After that,
I'll change a few names and then upload the files. Please consider that these
files are just initial versions, and they may change. But it should give you
something to fool around with.

As for your question, there are two ways to do it supported by the
file-iteration mechanism.

1) the easy way that requires minimal changes to your current code

/* old version
    , unused
    ) */

// new version, assuming that "iterate.hpp" is included



This will, ultimately, expand BOOST_MPL_AUX_LIST_FACTORY_SPECIALIZATION with
arguments ranging from 1 to BOOST_MPL_LIST_PARAMETERS_NUMBER - 1, which is the
way it is now, each expansion will be on a separate line.

2) the more complicated, but significantly more debuggable and slightly faster
version, I will upload after I upload the iterations files themselves. It
requires more than a small local change like the above, but more an alteration
of the file as a whole. I sent an example to the Dave (c/o this list) that
should help clarify the more complex mechanism.
