It's theoretically possible, to an extent, when I get automatically
generate archetypes from the pseudo-signatures working and if people were
to use a Boost.Generic macro when writing their constrained algorithms. I
was working toward generating archetypes last year, but it's now on hold
until I finish fixing explicit concept maps, which is taking a little bit
longer than expected. I wasn't expecting to use archetypes to the full
extent that they were used in N2914 though because it's complicated to do
in a library. What will probably end up happening first in that area is
archetypes will be automatically generated from concept definitions, but
people will have to manually work with them. With algorithms that have
simple constraints specified as template< ((Regular)) T > void foo( T );
it's definitely feasible, but with complicated clauses, it would be
