Yes that is the point.
first class types during ctfe allows you to use weak purity 
instead of strong purity!
And therefore makes AST manipulation or introspection much more 

I'll build a tiny POC shortly. The thing that I got stuck with 
last time was the lexer/parser modification that is required to 
flag type arguments to ctfe functions.
