Dave's argument is a good one. I agree, too.

That won't work as you made it a nested struct so it is still different
for all instantiations. I think Dave meant to go for this one:
// bool_testable contributed by Sam Partington
template <class T, class B>
template <class T, class B> friend class bool_testable;
typedef int safe_bool::*type;
template <class T, class B = ::boost::detail::empty_base>
struct bool_testable : B
operator safe_bool::type() const
return !static_cast<const T&>(*this) ? 0 : &safe_bool::x;
I also think it would be fair to mention Dave as a contributor, too, as
he provided the way to reduce the overhead.
