I really don't like macros. I have a hard time accepting boost PP but at
least we have never before used macros in a way that means that they proliferate
into user code.

I can not see why this has even come up for formal review. If this is auseful
feature then surely it should be taken up as a core language feature.

I would not have such a problem if we had an experimental track and then people
could try ideas before making a proposal.

We don't have this at the moment and I don't believe this should be accepted
into boost. So I vote no.

I can't make any other comments on docs, design or implementation etc
as I have not looked at it.

I am voting no on principle.
