Is it much better if MSVC-7.x (x>1) is added to the set
of possible compilers?
Which minimal set of the macros mentioned
in the int_const_guidelines do you think
is mandatory then?
Probably I should take the same approach as loki,
where there is a pure version and a portable version
side by side, dispatched by

I really want etl be based on boost::mpl as far as possible.
(though I sometimes suffer under the brevity of the docs,
a few more examples would help).
Is there a detailed documentation of all the mpl macros?

Let's say "cleaner in design". Easy assumes I already
have learned all that is available.
P.S.: do you see any really bad design flaws in Daixtrose
which should be avoided in etl?
