You're correct. My intention was that the additions (guarded_size and
guarded_distance) would be generally useful additions to the MPL, and that
is why I coded them as such.
I didn't want to force the issue without discussing with Aleksey first
though. Problem is I had some trouble moving the two metafunctions to
boost::detail::variant::mpl because of the way the MPL workaround macros
work. The problem you noticed was a result of a partial change in this
Thus, if variant is accepted, either 1) Aleksey would agree to adding these
components, or 2) I would determine a suitable way to move them into the
