Sounds interesting, but I can't put together a clear picture of what you're
proposing and how it would be used. I know that other people have made
strong arguments that operators.hpp gets things the wrong way 'round for
some operations like array multiplication, where you really want to define
operator*=() in terms of operator*(). It might be that some applications
(like expression templates, as you suggest) require a different set of
operator templates.
