A non-expert real-life user testimonial: I had never written a single macro
in my life (besides include guards) before I started using
Boost.Preprocessor and I didn't have any trouble figuring out how to use it
from the documentation. In fact, I was intimidated by macros until then but
now I'm pretty comfortable with them.
