http://www.open-std.org/jtc1/sc22/wg21/docs/papers/2016/p0195r2.html suggests a feature test macro of __cpp_variadic_using; the value would presumably be 201611. Does that seem OK to everyone?


I think it is okay.

I think it is slightly odd as the change is to allow multiple names in a using-declaration, but the expected use case is for variadics.

I’d also be okay with something like __cpp_multi_using.

__cpp_variadic_using had more support when it was discussed in core, FWIW.

I don't see any reason you'd want to feature test for the multiple-names-in-one-using-declaration part of the feature -- just don't use them if you want to be compatible with old language modes. But the variadic part does seem like something people would want to feature-test for. I can imagine someone wanting to write:

#if __cpp_variadic_using >= 201611
template<typename ...T> struct Callable : T... {
  using T::operator() ...;
};
#else
template<typename ...T> struct Callable;
template<typename T, typename ...U> struct Callable<T, U...> : T, Callable<U...> {
  using T::operator();
  using Callable<U...>::operator();
};
template<typename T> struct Callable<T> : T {
  using T::operator();
};
template<> struct Callable<> {};
#endif
