Not yet, but I'm working (slowly, I admit :P) on a constrained
types library. With this library it would be as easy as:

saturating_int<int, 0, 5>::type rating;
rating = -10; // clips the value to 0
rating = 10; // clips the value to 5

Recently I've found some time to continue working on the library
and am writing the documentation, but I can't tell whether and
when the library will be accepted as a Boost library. This can
take some time since there's still some work to do. Therefore if
you need the feature urgently you shouldn't count on soon
availability of the library.
