I agree with you. Your library is much more scalable.

It's not a problem to remember one or two things but it's hard
to remember more without a logic underneath.
I suggest at least using smart indentation in tutorial
for better visual impression.

Actually, I never tried to remember state interface although
I read your tutorial two or three times. I decided to postpone
it till I really need to write my first state machine.

This confusion proves my words :)

Template arguments are not only the place to play in.
For example, you may use nested typedef for transition
table like in MPL FSM example.
