No idea. I've not gotten much feedback, maybe because there's no
documentation??? However, most of the existing mpl docs would apply
to the variadic mpl. Also, I'm having trouble getting the code
to work with spirit. At present, I'm working on converting mpl:;and_
and mpl::or_ and variant to variadic versions in order to get the
code to work with spirit. It's been very tough :(

Do you mean package_range_c? If so, then yes, it is essentially the
same. The only reason for the extra features (arbitrary Value and Start
and Finish template params) is that it seemed easy enough to implement.

My gcc4.5 gives error:

attempt_2.cpp: In member function 'void func<T, Args>::call(Args ...)':
attempt_2.cpp:47:65: error: expected primary-expression before '...' token

call is not given any arguments, it's only given types. Try

   call(Args... args)

Something similar to that is in section 3.2 of the reference
Peter gave:

   template<typename... Values>
   vector(const Value&... values)
