Yes.

Then another thing - it strikes me that any problem that can be solved
by metaprogramming, can be solved by putting similar code into a class
and instanciating an instance.

Does anybody know if this is true?

If it is, it limits the usefulness of metaprogramming to the creation
of "stored procedures" for "later execution".
