With these timings it seems to me that you will be forced to provide two macro families: one that doesn't use the trick and can be used as template parameter only on compilers supporting this C++0x feature and the other which uses the trick is slow but can be used in a portable way as a template parameter.

I guess that this benchmark shows a hard limitation of Boost.Local at least until most of the compilers will accept local structures as template parameters.
