Cool, I thought in the same direction! I don't think that granularity is
really a problem, because, strictly speaking, these using declaration are
unnecessary if you make the operators in the base template 'public'; if you
try to use an operator that does not have an assignment counterpart in the
derived class, you'll get a compile error anyway. The only reason I went
with 'protected' and 'using' declarations is because you _need_ 'using' for
postfix increment and decrement (otherwise, they would be hidden by infix
versions in the derived class), and I felt that consistent use of 'using'
can be easy to remember and also has some nice documentation qualities.
