Sure, I agree. As I mentioned in previous emails, I am taking on the
assignments to:
1) Look into how variadics, empty sequences, and other C99-like
preprocessor extensions might simply the parenthesized syntax.
2) Look into how Alex-Steven's macro syntax can simplify the
parenthesized syntax.

At the same time, I would like to encourage people to try out the
parenthesized syntax of Boost.Local as is and tell me its pros and
cons. Thanks :)
