A lot of people have asked for such overloads.
It is always hard to tell what might or might not be accepted, until there
is a firm proposal in the form of a committee document. Sometimes killer
arguments surface which torpedo seemingly innocuous proposals - you never
know 'til you try.
The documents for next month's meeting should be available any day now. See
if there is anything about the issue in the issues list or any proposals.
If not propose it yourself.
If you can't come to C++ committee meetings, don't let that stop you. A
number of critical portions of the Library TR were proposed by John Maddock
or Peter Dimov, and neither of them has ever come to a committee meeting
AFAIK. Look at past proposals and issues to see the form.
