Well, I am afraid this might not be possible with current
BOOST_TYPEOF --Types/templates not registerd just result in compile error
Come to think about it, this doesn't have to stay this way. I havn't tried
it, but it seems possible to just put some well-known type in place of
not-registered one, for example, something like this:
or maybe just
This way the fact that types are not registered can be used in
meta-programs. The drawback -- it's unclear what's not registered. So
maybe we need some sort of combination of both.
Again, *I think* it's possible, but I am not in a position to verify this
until later in the evening... Is it something that would be of interest?
