About the adoption and success of DbI libraries:

- Buried inside your talks there are lots of hard-earned 
   "What's missing is as important as what's here"
   "Big interfaces are good"
   We have a lack of DbI designers such as yourself or Vladimir so 
a short text that teach how to design with DbI could be in order.
   I redirect people to "std::allocator is to allocation what 
std::vector is to vexation" because it seems to be the only 
tutorial on this.

   Other people often lack interest because of real or perceived 
template bloat, and it's critical.

- I think it's important to emphasize CTFE over template 
instantiations because (per Stefan's measurements) template 
instantiations are a lot slower and CTFE is already surprisingly 
faster than template meta-programming, and on the road to become 
even faster with the superbly needed newCTFE.
