It is my understanding that mpl does have a dot-style typelist. If
not, it should. Then, why wouldn't you use that? Ideally, the
dot-style typelist would be in a small header so you don't have to
#include the world to get the six lines of code that comprise the
dot-style typelist.

FWIW, little ad-hoc dot-typelists appear all over the place in various
boost libraries. Would be good to unify those. I think it would be
great to set politics aside and to include dot-typelists in boost.
They are a useful facility.
