And C++ just keeps gettin' bigger, too.
Claims were made that pipes could reduce code size by a factor of 10 while
increasing clarity. If true, it's certainly worthy. Even by 2 would be
hard to argue with. One thing about traits is that you can see how the
code is cleaner (and even then, there's still reistance).
It's reasonable to ask for some evidence.
I agree, by the way, that ";;" looks like a typo, and it's a little
disturbing when coming from another language since multiple semi-colons
are usually semantically meaningless.
