AFAIK that's not a bug in the operators library, but an inefficiency in
the compiler's ABI (the EBO actually, which misses some optimization
opportunities for multiply inheritance from empty base classes). If your
compiler is inefficient, you can use the case class chaining technique
offered/supported by the operators library (currently, Neal's code is
*not* using it). See the documentation at
