Why not just:

    number operator++(int)
        return postfix_incrementer<number>(*this);

I'm pretty sure there's not: the object will be copied again when it is
sliced for the return value. This one will work:

    postfix_incrementer<number> operator++(int)
        return postfix_incrementer<number>(*this);

But of course, the type identity of the result of the function has
changed... :(
