sorry for the OT, but you seem to be experienced with compile time
optimization and I`m new to that. a library that I plan to submit to
boost causes > 50 s compile times even for simple examples, so do you
have any recommendations on where to start?
is there a compiler that can profile its own compile time? iirc GCC
has a debug option that prints the name of the template that is
currently instantiated, but creating a profile from that is still a
lot of work.

my library invokes a lot of Boost.Serialization and some MPL/fusion
code, so I'm not even sure if I can do anything about that within my
