But it restricts the second argument to be a template class with exactly one
template argument. The other way keeps common variations open. The system
I suggest is what the I/O stream stuff uses. The character type is a
type-based template parameter, the traits type is another type-based
template parameter (defaulted to std::char_traits<CharType>). A way to trim
the arguments down would be to completely depend on the policy argument, and
use a class-static constant from it to define the bit width (Policy::width).
