Is usage of template and preprocessor techniques that problematic?
Sure, it's possibly a programming paradigm you're not used to, but it
shouldn't prevent taking over the code once you've learned or practiced
with them.

I think there is too much mystification about Boost doing "magic", it's
just normal C++ code, that any seasoned C++ programmer should be able to
understand once he has taken the time to do so.
