I'll happily do whatever the people agree on.
Personally, I dont't see any core problem in
the extension. The main reason I deem the change
harmless is because we are replacing one function
with one function: if we had to provide different
overloads for say operator==, function template
ordering would play a role, which is more
dangerous (some compilers do not support this

My conclusion is then that the change cannot
posibly break anything --but as I said before,
I'll abide the mailing list's verdict.
