I worked through your example and it seemed correct to me, except for
adding "typename" one or two places. Have you tried to compile it?

But in another message someone claimed that template template parameter
replacements were not just broken compiler workarounds, but actually better
that template template parameters. Could someone explain the rationale
behind that assertion?
