Subject: [boost] identification versus demangle

I want to print and visualize MPL.Graph (and thus MSM) metadata.
I'm debating whether to help "Make boost::units::detail::demangle an official utility function"  (actually the public function is peacefully called simplify_typename) or to use Joel Falcou's Identification library .
It would be annoying to users to have to register every type in their graph/state machine, so I guess I'm wondering if demangle(typeid(T).typename()) is impossible on a lot of compilers.
Anyone know this?
