One addition I'd like to see would be a BOOST_ENUM_MASKS or similar:

I really like this idea. Want to help me implement it? Sounds like we need a
bunch of operator overloads to make it all go. I've always wanted this sort
of thing too.

I'm not sure if a _COMMENTS version would be all that useful nor a

I'm now thinking of just having something else called a BOOST_STRINGTABLE, a
convienent way to get at a bunch of strings without needing an external
resource file/compiler.

I'm also not sure whether the '|' character should be

Hehe, it's sometimes hard to resist the urge to over-engineer, especially as
a library developer eh? Although I am intriged about this iterator idea.
