Urgh. I really must learn not to selectively read tiny portions of the
standard in an attempt to back up my prejudices :-( As I noted, I don't need
the friendship anyway, so the issue is moot.

Mark checked this and says it's OK, so that's great.
Unless I hear dissenting comments, I'm happy to count this version as
"official". Beman, can you pick it up from the vault to go in when the new
operators.hpp does (might as well keep the two together, so Borland works)?
PS I'd really like to get mingw working - does anyone know if the error I
hit is a mingw/gcc bug or something I can/should have coded round?
