Just to clarify: We are talking about 5.3.4/15, i.e., in case of PODs
new T does leave it uninitialized, while new T() default constructs it,

As a solution in order to fulfill N2691, wouldn't it be easier to fix it
inside the function, by simply doing:

if( sizeof...( Args ) == 0 )
  new( pv ) T();
  new( pv ) T( detail::forward<Args>( args )... );

with an appropriate comment that it's GCC's fault?
