But the point is that give_number is a function object type, it can't be
replaced with a template metafunction. If one wants to have integral bounds,
he may use bounded_int which takes integral constants as its parameters.

The problem is double_c is not a function object type - it only defines
operator value_type(). If it'd also define

value_type operator() ()
  return static_cast<value_type>(*this);

then it would be usable in this case. Maybe you'll consider the possibility
to add this operator to double_c?

There's something I don't understand - what does the above line do? I can't
see runtime_value having a constructor?
