The MSVC version of 'tuple' requires nil to be a distinct type with certain
properties. Working around this is possible, but it would clutter the
implementation even more than it already is.

My inclination is to not share implementation code. One day the non partial
specialization version will drop off the face of the Earth and we can all
rejoice instead of having to weed out old code hanging between #ifdef's.
