I hate to quibble about things like this, but I don't think it should
fall to me to repair a change which breaks our testing procedures. I
can think of approaches which allow a similar easy switch to occur
without obscuring the #include directives, FWIW. It makes more work
for the maintainer of type_traits, of course...
