every time I tried to use somthing which uses || or && in a constant
expression (and that's almost everything) failed to compile with VC6.4, but
type_traits_test.cpp succeeded in compiling without complaint. Are you sure
you're not missing something?
P.S. I checked in a change which turned || into | and && into & everywhere,
so any tests will succeed with the latest snapshot.
