FWIW I would prefer to live with BOOST_TYPEOF and type registration. I have no
doubt that registration will have its problems but only by familiarity will they

Anyway somebody already proposed a similar looking alternative on comp.std.c++:

but with no response. Of course then, the proposer was ahead of his time. Now,
BOOST_TYPEOF makes this functionality redundant
