Apologies for not answering your question earlier. I am not sure how I
managed to miss it. The answer is 'no', I do not think there is
Boost.Parameter documentation missing. Unfortunately, my understanding
was/is that to achieve that I have to resort to Boost.Parameter macros which
I managed to avoid so far. I think I understand the non-macros part of
Boost.Parameter. I quite like it and I am comfortable using it.
Boost.Parameter macros seemed too complex and looked too "alien" which
exacerbated my general dislike of macros. Please do not take it as a
criticism of any kind. It's merely my "casual-user" impression which can
easily be wrong as I was not prepared to spend enough time playing with
