Just because there haven't been any messages in the last few days
doesn't mean interest is dead. People are busy with other things.
(Though it's probably safe to say that interest is not huge.)

What are P1, P2, P3 ... ?

Sometimes you can sneak in complex return types like so

     template< ... >
     typename mpl::identity< [put messy stuff here] >::type
     f( ... );
