Regardless, it's easily something that can be added later, and whenever
it's added, it makes sense to put it in a separate header from the class
template anyway. I'm sure that at review time, the people who want a
useful system now that can be built upon later with extra functions will
outvote anyone who would rather hold their breath for something that
does everything everyone might want.
