How about just posting a patch for the type traits library? ;-)

Subject: [boost] More partial specialization workarounds

> Hi all,
> I would be interested to hear from anyone familiar with the issues in
> porting metaprogramming libraries to VC nowadays, for example the
> Lambda Library. Partial specialization workarounds have become a
> hobby of mine. I recently came up with a new category of
> metafunctions resembling those in boost::type_traits. For example I
> believe we can now write: is_pointer_to_same, is_pointer_to_POD, or
> even the monstrous is_vector_of_pointer _to_list_of_POD on broken
> compilers. In some cases these can help circumvent the lack of a
> functioning std::iterator_traits. If there is sufficient interest I
> have an OOPSLA '01 workshop paper on this topic that I could post.
