to bring this up I believe this is kinda useful. I had to write my own
power<> and root<> recently and wondered the excact same thing. Have
you written these templates? Maybe you could submit a patch, my
version does not use the MPL, I just rely on the good compile time
evaluation of constant expressions by gcc.
