This is another point where I don't agree with the proposal. Boost.MPL
and Boost.Mp11 are very different in API, which means that a library
that uses template metaprogramming and wants to support C++03 and later
cannot be compliant with the Epoch requirements, unless it contains two
versions of the TMP code - one with Boost.MPL and another with
Boost.Mp11. Or its own hand-rolled TMP primitives. This is impractical
or advocates against code reuse.
