Let's try to get this reviewed. Jason? You'd indicated a willingness to
prioritize TR1 work in Redmond. What do you think of this patch, and is
this something we can get into 4.0?

Yes. I saw that.

:(

I'm trying to think of a better way to do this, but cannot at the
moment. There's no way to avoid this kind of insanity without variadic
templates, or something like that. 

Bummer.

I'm sure that if somebody comes up
with a great idea to do this without the macro hacks at some point in
the future, or with approved template extensions, we can discuss it
then.

I think this looks great. Thanks for this work! I'm ok with this going in as-is, as soon as your assignment becomes active.
