Very cool. Just for kicks, I ran the testsuite for Boost.MPL, and  
we're passing all but 4 tests there. Not bad!

To tackle Boost, it's worth starting with the regression tests for the  
lowest-level libraries and working upward. We're not going to get it  
all in one shot, and it's best to grow the set of libraries that works  
over time.
