Hi everyone,

I find myself developing a lot of "indirect traits" along the lines of what
Mat Marcus described in his Oopsla paper (for dealing with compilers without
partial specialization). Some examples I've got so far:

referent_alignment -- given T&, yields alignment_of<T>::value
referent_size -- given T&, yields sizeof(T)

Do we want to legitimize these somehow, or should they stay buried in
