Interesting. What's the library about in the first place?

Quick summary of the discussion context: Boost.Parameter was my first
suggestion. Ion was concerned that too much template instantiations
would have a negative impact on the size of the executable image (due to
poor code factorization with some compilers when a template gets
instantiated with many distinct types, that actually mean the same), so
we were discussing minimalist, custom-made, named template parameters.

Yes, always curious to take a look...
