Yeah, sorta. I was planning on doing that after I wrote some code

that uses it in anger.

IIRC, it's the latter. It's been a while since I worked on this code,

though. Oh, the comment says:

  // CRTP base class for conveniently making movable types. You don't

  // have to use this to make a type movable (if, for example, you don't

  // want the MI non-EBO penalty); you just need to provide the

  // conversion to move_from<Derived> yourself in that case.

  template <class Derived>

  struct movable

I haven't been, really. The coding/testing work is done, as far as

I'm concerned. It needs docs, of course.
