Based on your criticism, it seems to me that you do not understand important
parts of the library; that's my fault for not documenting them or for doing it
badly. I could write a long reply explaining rationales to some of your
comments and explaining things on which you are downright wrong (e.g. did you
really read the documentation for BOOST_HANA_STATIC_ASSERT[1]?), but I'd
rather spend that time improving the documentation so everyone can benefit.

I made the mistake of thinking Hana was well documented enough before it was.
That's my mistake. Now, I'd ask from you that you wait until I have improved
the documentation and clarified some common misconceptions (which I did not
think would be problematic) before going forward with your review of the
library. Doing otherwise would be losing your time and making me lose mine
in writing replies like this one.
