Not so fast:
s = 'x';
s == 'x'; // ooops can't do
Again that "overloads" uses a tuple is an implementation detail.
Ok, I don't want to beat this to death. Hmm... ok since we are
dealing with an overload set. Perhaps a "set" is a good description
of this. So perhaps "add" is not that bad after all (Johan must be
smiling :-) ). Or perhaps, the union operator |= might also be
a good candidate.
I'll leave it up to you guys, your intuitions are fine and cool! :-)
