I believe that we already have a submission which is intended to cover this
territory at, by Rudiger Loos.
There are still a few issues with this code which haven't been resolved. In
particular, The constructor arguments to basic_format need to be passed
by-reference instead of by-value so that non-copyable classes can be
formatted. Mr. Loos did most of his work many months ago, but at the time
his design met with the general agreement of all the interested boosters. If
any advantages to your design could be merged with the work already done
here, that would be ideal.
