Excellent article Peter! It builds nicely from one concept to the next.

Within Spirit X3 we have been discussing lightweight metaprogramming in
the world of C++14. You have articulated very well what we are beginning
to discover - "I posit that such higher order metaprogramming is, in the
majority of cases, not necessary in C++11." This thought intrigues me
and I'm excited to see how far we can take it in libraries such as
Spirit X3 and boostache.

Thank you for taking the time to put the article together and share it
with the community.

Take care -
