Subject: [boost] [Variant] C++11 variadic template implementation

I'd like to know if anybody were working on a C++11 version (using variadic
templates) of Boost.Variant.
I currently use the 'classic' version in my project, but since I need
more-than-20-type variants, the compilation take a lot of time (extending the
number of types that variant can support forces you to disable the use of
precompiled headers). Plus, I'll need to use 70 type variants (MPL lists are
physically limited to 50 types).
If nobody has started to implement such a version yet, I'd be pleased to
I've written an implementation. It's incomplete and far from perfect, but it
could (hopefully) be a viable working basis.
