Loki 0.1.2 Released

Loki is a C++ library of designs, containing
flexible implementations of common design patterns

Andrei's famous book "Modern C++ Design",
it has now grown beyond the confines of this

This new release fixes several bugs (the bug
count is down to 1!)

It's now possible to use Loki without the
TYPELIST macros. Also it's possible to avoid
any memory leak.
A other highlight is the new 'Function' template
