The closet thing to reflection I've seen in Boost would be the
Boost.Fusion adapt macros. They actually work quite well.

Thanks for the information, David.
I'm going to look into it and read your companion paper.
Based on the limited responses I got on this topic, I can only assume
that reflection is not really a concern for most C++ programmers.
I myself find it extremely useful and the current RTTI stuff just does
not cut it for me.
