Well, as for me, I've been using the technique in its original form
(something like Jeremy's
iterator_traits_builder::Reference<int>::Pointer<int*>::..) in producation
code for a few months by now... NTPs solve one real problem - they greatly
improve usability of class templates with many (default) parameters, and IMO
this is kind of thing the upcoming iterator adaptors library might need.. ;)
