mp11 is not quite a competitor to Hana. True, they both do metaprogramming.
But mp11 is rather a replacement for the myriads of hand-rolled type-based
metaprogramming primitives scattered all over people's code; it's like a
collection of these same primitives, but done coherently and with an unified
naming convention. (And with, I suppose, proper-ish documentation and a test
