BTW, did you read Scott's errata? To quote from it:

109 Both the first and second implementations on this page
      suffer from the problem that they are returning whatever
      operator=+ returns. In general, there is no way to know
      what this is (yes, it's a reference to an object of type T,
      but a reference to which T object?), hence no way for
      compilers to optimize away the copy to operator+'s return
      value. The way to write operator+ such that the return
      value optimization can be performed is with this body:

        T result(lhs);
        result += rhs;
        return result.
