For syntax reasons, this is an undesirable solution. Although,
you could get pretty close by modifying it a little:

      template<typename P1, typename P2>
      struct sp {
           template<typename T>
           struct nested : sp_nested<P1, P2, T>
           { };

The problem is that sp_nested<> would be an implementation detail
that I would not want to expose to the user. So I would not want
the user to have to mention it in order to instantiate less<>.
