I will work on doing so if it is OK with the original authors of the
library. I can do this for the type_traits_ext in the CTL.
I would also like to see the operator detection in the CTL added to
Boost, even with the known limitations for operators which must be
member functions, but I do not know if you feel this would also be an
addition to the type traits library ? I know that Frederick Bron has
added some traits to the type_traits in the sandbox which are a subset
of all the operator traits in the CTL but he appears to have stopped
with what he was doing because he found out the CTL already existed.
