So for now my idea is to brute force the numbers of arguments
with 'compiles' trait or trying to get the sourcecode somehow.
depending on source code form (even if you can get it) is
highly error-prone. consider it UB.
also, i think that you'd better not guess, but ask the user to
explicitly instantiate the methods with `alias` -- this way you
have to write less hacky code, and the user will have more
control over what is bound. you may provide helper mixin
templates to instantiate n-ary functions with given set of
types too. this is slightly more work on the user side, but it
doesn't depend on hacks and undocumented things.
Yes, but i like the idea of "automagically" bind everything with
little user effort.
Sometimes you have a lot of code to expose to lua (and templated
code as well with lots of templated argument combinations), so I
think is nice to have some automated work on this.
But you are right about the "highly error-prone" part.
I´ll try to avoid that path :)
