I had another crazy idea: exploit the fact that date and time are
separate to map the rather limited (compared to full time) range of

template<const char*>
struct date

template<> struct<"Dec 4 2007">
     static const int month = 12;
     static const int day = 4;
     static const int year = 2007;

then use struct<__DATE__>.

However it seems C++ doesn't allow this either?
