Actually, on second thoughts, I don't think I want to do that. I'm
pretty sure the intent of the code is to replace the generic
swap-by-copy-assignment std::swap template, but *not* to replace a
specifically-written swap. Making it *less* specialized than std::swap
is effectively the same as removing detail::move_swap::swap(), I think.
Is there a hack to exclude the std::swap template from consideration for
this call?
