I'm not sure why you say this.

We have a fake form of variadic templates because we wanted them so badly.

We have many non-trivial templates where they make sense and provide
value... I mean, we certainly avoid them when not appropriate or when
ethere are other, simpler solutions... :: shrug ::

On the other hand, there are trivial uses of variadic templates too, so I
think we could still make the argument that they're handy to have.
