It's funny. When I submitted the paper to TMPW01 I submitted functional
code, too, but somehow the code never made it on the oonumerics page.
You can download it from http://moderncppdesign.com/variant/Variant.zip. The
code's rather old and I didn't have the time to write thorough tests, so I
suspect there are a couple of bugs and many opportunities for improvement.
