I wonder what you refer to here? I have been thinking that the use of a
member template for
result_type operator()(Engine& eng)
is sometimes awkward. It doesn't allow compile-time inquiry of the engine
properties by the distribution class. For example, I have a distribution
that generates an integer of random bits of a fixed width. It is awkward
that the distribution class can't get the engine bit width.
