Well, they use Templates as well. AFIK the also support a pretty broad
range of even old and embedded platforms, where not too modern and
standard compliant compilers that claim to compile something similar to
C++ are available.

Anyway, that could also be something positive we could learn from their
approach. I also think, there are positive things to learn from them -
they do have some success and provide a quite poverfull library.
