Do these changes need to be peer-reviewed?

If the pp-lib needs to be changed, why not change it radically to add
ground-up variadic support? (This is not a rhetoric question. I am
sincerely asking as there might be very good reasons not to add
ground-up variadic support to Boost.Preprocessor.)

I use Boost.Preprocessor (PP_TUPLE_, etc) pervasively in the
implementation of a lot of macros in my projects. I also occasionally
use Edward's VMD library. I will haply test the Boost.Preprocessor
changes against my code.
