Boost.Preprocessor represents the lowest common denominator in what can
be made portable across most C and C++ compilers. The main roadblock to
more significant improvement (nowadays) is VC++'s horrible preprocessor.

By "comma-separated strings" I assume you mean something like: a, b, c?
Boost.Preprocessor doesn't support them, of course. Chaos doesn't
support them in that form (generally speaking, data structures containing
open commas = bad design).
