I think the problem is the way mpl::is_sequence is implemented.
It tries to detect the presence of a "tag" typedef and a "begin"
typedef and concludes that a type is an mpl::sequence if it
has both. I've complained a long time ago about this. I think
this behavior is error prone. It's quite easy to come up with
a situation where I have a type T with a "tag" and a "begin"
but is not an MPL sequence. There must be a better way. MPL
should not monopolize on the usage of "tag" and a "begin"
in a type.

Anyway, in any case, is_sequence<int_<0> >::value should never
fail to compile.
