I wasn't sure what you expected from add_const< int (int) >; you might have
wanted "int (int) const" as a result.

Anyway, add_const(T) returns "T const", whatever that means. References
shrug off cv-qualifiers. Function types generate errors. They'll start
shrugging off cv-qualifiers once compilers implement CWG#295.

I don't see why you expect remove_pointer(T) to work when T is not a
