Probably :-)

Anyone else have a need for this?

type_traits uses integral_constant<bool,val> for true/false results which in
turn inherits from mpl::bool_<val> so the two should be completely
compatible with each other. Note that integral_constant is part of the TR1
and the next std, where as MPL is not, so type_traits won't be changing in
this respect.
