For the mere mortals among us, who are struggling to keep up with the
metaprogramming astronauts, am I right in thinking that you are lamenting
the emphasis on 'bells and whistles' to support SIMD iterators, while the
more fundamental aspects of iterator segmentation are being ignored?
And in your last remark are you saying you fear that metaprogramming and
the Boost MPL are monsters!?
