Yeah, that's one worthy goal of templates. I'm hoping it matures
enough to fulfill that goal. For that, I'll need use-cases.
Please send in your ideas. Take Andrew Sutton's STL pages,
for example. I imagine lots of boilerplate. Can these be
templated? I have a feeling yes, but I am not sure yet how
to best accomplish it.
