I've been looking at the comments in the review threads. Sometime ago I
reviewed the documentation for the AFIO library. I sat in on two
presentations on the subject at C++Now. That is all I know about the
library. Sadly, I won't have time to make a review.

The above comment is the only thing in all of this which has made any
sense at all to me. I don't see why something like the above shouldn't
be possible and I don't see why it would be a bad idea. A library which
did this would be highly useful.
