What is the problem with "template" ? it is the best compromise you can have in
fact so long as we cannot have a good SIMD compiler. Creating an ASM optimizer
with template will be cooler than a simple preprocessor in fact (yeah I must
consider creating such a language !).

What do you mean ??? template classes allows us to have a seperate
representation of data and algorithms : sometimes we could prefer to let the
compiler to optimize the code depending of the data the latter handles. It is
its main goal.
