I think it could, but some parts of it would be a bit hard to implement.
Specifically, the fact that Hana does not use the concept of an iterator
means that we would have to emulate iterators in some other way.
Also, the lambda expression part would have to be the same as in MPL.
That being said, I'm not sure what the gain would be, except perhaps
