Looks like ISPTR used as a discriminator for full class
will work if ISCONST used as a secondary discriminator and member
template classes work :

template <bool is_ptr, bool is_const>
struct iterator_traits_helper
  template <class Iterator> class iterator_traits_base {
    typedef typename Iterator::value_type value_type;

struct iterator_traits_helper<true, true>
  // we know for sure this guy is const T*
  // remove_const template is supposed to remove const -- do we have
that ???
  template <class Iterator> class iterator_traits_base {
    typedef typename remove_const<Iterator>::value_type value_type;

template <class T>
struct iterator_traits : public

The problem might be that VC6 might not work very well with typedefs
inside member template classes...
