No, we do not want to unwrap A (by A::value), then rewrap the result
using bool_.
This came up with enable_if where many boosters wanted to be able to
say something like:

enable_if<mpl::not_<is_integral<T> >, ...>::type instead of
enable_if<!is_integral<T>::value, ...>::type

Now we just want to know whether not_ is part of MPL's public interface.
