Forgive me if this has already been addressed, but is there a reason as to
why a template is prefered here as opposed to a macro solution? A solution
using preprocessor metaprogramming would allow one to use the value at
preprocessing time as well as compile-time, making a template version
unecessary, and syntactically it would be even simpler since you wouldn't
need to do ::value. The call could be as simple as BOOST_BINARY_INT(
(1100)(0011)(1010) ) using Boost.Preprocessor sequences. Again, I am sorry
if this has already been addressed.
