At first glance and except for:

   1) terseness
   2) limitation to 2 arguments
   3) the need for separate allocation for the overhead

I can't see much difference between the above make<R,A,B> and
auto_overhead at:

AFAICT, it would be a simple change to just skip the overhead allocation
by making the overhead in auto_overhead an empty base class.
