I have been using the variadic_macro_data library to rework
Boost.Local macros to variadic macros. It turned out I only needed a
couple of macros from this library (VMD_SIZE and VMD_TO_SEQ) so I
cannot comment much about the library at this point. However, I read
the entire library documentation and I am personally pleased with the
functionalities that it offers and especially with its design that
does not change any of the Boost.Preprocessor macros.

I would personally find it useful if this library is reviewed for
addition to Boost.
