It's not "broken", it doesn't work for reference types on compilers
without partial template specialization because at the time it wasn't
clear how to make it work. If you have an implementation in mind that
would perform better, please post it.

If it was easy enough it would be fixed long before the release. In any
case, I would be strongly opposite to sticking in a new implementation
just now. It's bad enough "the patch" got us delayed for more than a
