I am one of the maintainers, as I did work adding variadic macro support
to Boost PP with Paul Mensonides help. I do think that linking to some
other page or anchor each time you click the "(v)" is redundant. There
are many places in the Boost PP doc that use the "(v)" notation and I
would have to link or anchor each one of them. I also found out an
anchor on another page does not work well with the way the Boost PP docs
are setup.
