In the middle of a discussion about whether we need four metaprogramming
libraries, you are asking me to provide a fifth. :-)
mp11 is fundamentally based on template aliases. Yes, this is constraining
for people who are accustomed to higher-order programming. The point is not
to be all things to all people; higher-order programming is well covered by
the other contenders in the field.
I realize that this way of thinking does not sit well with some that would
prefer we settle on a single library.
