Question: Also, is there any reason not to try and 'constexpr' as many function as you can? As I understand, if the 'constexpr' function cannot be evaluated at compile time, it will just act as a regular function? So best case is you get compile time evaluation wins, worst case is you have a regular acting function.

    Optimizing compilers try to do that anyway, afaik? But anyway, for most uses I don't see it having a big effect.

Question: Hey Justin, do you prefer c-style casts or c++ style casts? The only true benefit of c++ style casts I can see is being able to easily search a codebase for them, validation of casts is cool but maybe not persuasive enough, especially in the case of 'dynamic_cast' which can have runtime penalties.. Cheers :)

    I use C-style casts most of the time. I still want a language-aware semantic grep tool...

    Yogurt and bircher muesli is pretty awesome and is probably the most reliable, but then french toast or cornmeal pancakes are more awesome.
