Compile-time reflection may be more inline with the spirit of C++,
specifically the preference of no-overhead abstractions. Be careful with
binding your work too closely with runtime reflection -- don't let it sink
your proposal. This might be even more dangerous given that both proposals
are quite heavy and will probably take years to mature.
