It's only 120 (instead of 800) lines because you haven't implemented the
features and workarounds that our library has. It's not like we've
written ~600 lines of useless code that can just be eliminated..

But the type should never be part of the keyword! It has to be coupled
with the function. Keywords needs to be reusable between different

I don't know if you do. But there are certainly other people who do.

We have made NO compromises in the design of this library to help less
capable compilers. What does it matter if the implementation contains
workarounds? Why do you care?
