I do use code generation where template won't suffice, like generating state machines, but it complicates the build process.

In the end metaprogramming evolved from simple GP without intrinsic language support for it and that is ultimately what I'm complaining about.

Newer iterations of C++ post say 20 are starting to rectify this, and make the concepts more "first class"

That will improve readability without complicating the build.
