But variadics are a part of C. Though this is a bit outside of Boost's
mission, the PP lib is arguably even more useful to C programmers than
it is to C++ programmers. I don't see any harm in targeting C
programmers for this particular library, since they could be an
important user base; as long as it doesn't compromise the library's
usefulness for C++ programmers.

I'm looking forward to your release of Chaos. Maybe this exercise is
just a learning experience for me, if you already have implemented
better variadic support in Chaos.
