How many alternative libraries have been submitted for a topic that is
already covered by a Boost library?

This is a roundabout way to say that it _will_ discourage others. I say
nothing about this being good or bad, and nothing about MPL in particular.
It's just that "competition" within Boost is virtually nonexistant.
