Actually the 'ct_if' is going to be replaced by the 'select_type' template
of the boost template metaprogramming library ('boost::mpl'). I need one
more weekend to finish the things up (work is being hectic for me), but
basically the library is pretty much done. As for the proposed change - its'
already incorporated into the library; the primary version of
'boost::mpl::select_type' template (one for standard compliant compilers)
looks like this:

template<bool Condition, typename T1, typename T2> struct select_type
    typedef T1 type;

template<typename T1, typename T2> struct select_type<false, T1, T2>
    typedef T2 type;
