Between the two: adaptable_any is better, I think.

Because I like throwing wrenches: have you considered a very different name
such as "polymorphic" or just "poly". The idea is that we read:

  poly<less_than_comparable, equality_comparable>

as "a type that is polymorphic over all less_than_comparable &
equality_comparable types."

And because I'm feeling silly and reading a book on lattice theory... it could
also be named models_meet, as in "a type that models the meet of the
following concepts in the concept lattice".
