I see that integral_c<> has been fixed now.
I'm puzzled though about why the apparently simple fix didn't worked on
On bcc5.5.1, it says: Cannot cast from 'T' to 'T' (!?)

Anyway, I'd like to know what is the role of integral_c<>; in particular,
with respect to 'int_c<>'.
IOWs, why does it has next/prior?

I know that you could pass an integral_c<> to a metafunction which would
operate on a generic Integral metavalue, doing ::next for instance; but my
question is: when and why would you pass 'integral_c<>' instead of
