The similar template in boost::mpl is called 'int_t<N>'. There are also
'bool_t<C>' and 'fixed_t<N,M>', if it helps to see the pattern.

Andrei, is there something in your int2type<> that mpl::int_t<> doesn't
provide? Do you think that despite their similarity they are different
classes? I really would like to address this _huge_ overlap between your
proposal and what we aready have here. Please, let's cooperate!
