Sure, but if we don't have a way to reliably distinguish unions from
classes, we're out of luck because there's no way to make
is_polymorphic do something special for unions.
We could put in the test for is_union and then ask users to
specialize is_union<U> for their unions U until they get compiler
support for that type trait.
