Thanks Eric for your effort on this.
I think proto is currently filling a hole which will increase in
importance. Putting my researcher cap back for a minute, I can tell you
that the DS(E)L topic is relatively hot at the moment with effort from
a lot of big guns like the SCALA team from Standford or Paul Kelly's
team from Imperial College. They all use various host languages and
various technology to implement these and I think C++ with the help of
Proto has a major role to play in this paradigm shift. So having some
brain tank here about that feels important to help push these kind of
work in both academic and industrial contexts.
