>Intel C++ uncovered the following with a warning:

    typedef int& r_type;
    typedef const r_type cr_type;
type_traits_test.hpp(278): warning #21: type qualifiers are meaningless in
this declaration
  typedef const r_type cr_type;

I wonder if we've been testing the right things?

I changed it to:

    typedef int const& cr_type;

Everything seems to continue to pass.
On the other hand, the pragmas used to disable warnings with MSVC suggest
that this was intentional. Was it? A comment would be a big help, here.

Yikes that's the wrong change, it was intentional, but as you say should be
documented - it uncovers bugs in some compilers (gcc and Borland at least).
 I'll change it back and comment it.
