Sounds like encouragement to me - I shall persevere.

Having been forced to read FORTRAN, I have some empathy with them :-)

One of the questions I pondered was whether I should use Boost.Parameter
or not. In the end I opted to use it, and I think it works well. Using
thirteen parameters does however slow the compiler quite significantly.
There is also a slight clash with the Math toolkit library in the vault,
in that it unconditionaly defines BOOST_PARAMETER_MAX_ARITY to a smaller

BTW, just noticed that math toolkit is in SVN - will it be in the next
boost release?
