I plan to use a small inline member functions, calling out-of class
'method-like' functions :

namespace exiled_methods {

template<class T>
int do_that(format& self, const T& x);


class format {
template<class T>
int do_that(const T& x) { do_that(*this, x); }

template<class T>
friend int exiled_methods::do_that(format&, const T&);

this work-around is quite a code bloat, but it should not have any
impact on performance.

Errr, then again, maybe MSVC refuses friend template declarations..

then I'll hesitate between making everything public,
or making all template methods inline..

Does MSVC accept friend template declarations ?
