FWIW I have been reading the previous discussion and found the function
style filters , whatever v. interesting, but Possibly like others I havent
really got any constructive suggestions.... I am just voyuerising. Most
important thing seems to be the pragmatic one... compile times, and that the
mechanisms involved in the library may turn out to be as useful as the end
result. The big question (Which I hope will be dicussed at the next big C++
meeting?) is what will compiler authors make of Concepts with a big C. IOW
Are they ever going to be practical. (It seems that decltype, which IMO
Everyone wants, too may need similar heavyweight speculative
instantiation,backout etc.) The library here certainly has some flavour of
something to focus those discussions on.
