I think it would be really, really cool to have a version of Signals2
that uses variadic templates rather than preprocessor metaprogramming.
For me, personally, I'd rather see it as an alternative implementation
of exactly the same interface (switched based on
BOOST_NO_VARIADIC_TEMPLATES) rather than a separate library. But,
that's up to Frank :)
