I don't understand this. The difference between Dave's approach and Mojo
is the technique used to discriminate between rvalues and const

   struct X : mojo<X>
       X(constant<X>); // HERE

   struct X : new_way<X>

       template<class T>
       X(T&, typename enable_same<X const, T>::type = 0); // HERE

This is true for Mojo as well, except for working around const& binding.

Right. And if it isn't the correct action both ways will work equally
