nope... IE explorer ie "the web browser cvs interface". All I'm seeing is
an empty directory.
I better rtm.

Are there moves in this direction?

abracadabra...??? (*magic*)....

 struct minus
   template<typename> struct result;

   template<typename F, typename T, typename U>
     struct result<F(T, U)>
     {//*** assuming this is not "automagic"??? ie require user
        typedef typename binary_operation<T,std::minus,U>::result_type type;
    template<typename T, typename U>
      typename result<minus(T, U)>::type operator()(T t, U u)
     { return t-u; }
 } ^^^

magic1 operator +(MyUDT<Ta> a, MyUDT<Tb> b);
magic 2 operator -(MyUDT<Ta> a, MyUDT<Tb> b);
etc operator * (MyUDT<Ta> a, MyUDT<Tb> b);
etc operator / (MyUDT<Ta> a, MyUDT<Tb> b);

    template<typename Ta,template < typename> class Op, typename Tb>
    struct binary_operation<
        typedef MyUDT<typename binary_operation<Ta,Op,Tb>::result_type >

How does the alternative to the above look?
