Just the operator metafunctions in the CTL are useful even without the
attempts to add concepts in the form of metafuncions. I do not think
C++0x, which is still a year or more away, has any "native" support
which would allow me to determine whether a type has an operator. There
are also useful metafunctions in the CTL which extend type_traits in
type_traits_ext unless these exist somewhere else in Boost I do not know
