Hi Krzysztof,

Definitely interested and will send more comments and questions in a few
days. Immediately though: is it possible to separately compile modules
and/or the configuration? From what I can tell, the injector is all
compile-time, which is actually really great *but* it seems like it
requires you to #include everything in one place which can wreak havoc
on productivity, ironically. For example, I have ~800 lines of binding
code, factored into different files and recompiling all those headers +
the template-heavy binding code every time I change one header somewhere
else is pointless.

You linked to my library and one of the insights you have made in yours
is that 99.999999999% of the time, the types are actually decided at
compile-time whereas in mine, it is always at runtime (yuck). So good
job on that.

Thanks for doing this, now I don't have to! :)
