Not a review, just a couple of comments.

That kind of library would be *very* valuable if it could be made to
work with a wide spectrum of compilers out there.

I know that kind stuff can break easily, so I'd really like to have some
test results for other compilers (xlC, Intel, ...) to know whether that
library is really limited to MSVC/GCC or not, in order to make a more
informed evaluation.

Otherwise, I also have a question:

Does the library deal with static const integral data members which you
cannot take the address of, and if it does, how does it do it?

I mean things like

struct A
    static const int value = 42;
