It's much more than that! I did run and see it (proud to be the first
downloader of version 0.2.1 :-)) and I'm enthusiastic. Too many times
I've realized I needed something to stem the pervasive danger of
Win32's all-is-a-dword typedefs and postponed the issue.

This is one of those lovely pearl which combine elegance and
usefulness in a way which happens to be obvious only once you have
seen it. That's the Euclid algorithm of the type system! :-)

About the name, isn't "identifier" meant as "something which gives an
identity" rather than as "C++ grammar identifier"?
