I made that point to find an answer to the following question: if compilers
did not have pathological trouble with template instantiation, would MPL's
design be similar?

I was referring to real-world, directly applicable examples that clearly
show that dot-typelists are not suitable for some task. Those results should
be consistent for most or all compilers.
