This sounds very similar to the MPL and MPL.Core separation . I
didn't drop workarounds for old compilers (except for one for
Borland), but MPL.Core seems to be close to what you list as MPL lite.
I think it is quite possible to drop the compatibility cruft from
MPL.Core, although I'm not sure how useful that would be. Others have
stated that newer language features can be used but require a
reimplementation. That's probably true, although I'm quite happy with
the current MPL.Core interface (note - not the iterators stuff, which
is not part of MPL.Core).
