if this is adressed to me then thank you
i'm aware that boost typeof wraps native facility and provide some
emulation otherwise
although i use primarily msvc i don't like the boost variant of typeof
because coding for my own purposes doesn't need typeof
and coding generically needs generic stable solutions
in my opinion boost typeof is not generic enough
that's why i don't like it
so i decided not to use boost typeof and wait for the new standard
