Metaclasses look really great. In principle, however, I think that reflection and compile-time programming allows to do similar things also with template classes. Nevertheless I see some good reasons for metaclasses, e.g. the intention is more clear and the syntax is better. Is there somewhere a more detailed explanation why metaclasses are better than (template classes + reflection + compile-time programming)?
