Ability to turn off RTTI, specify on-empty policy which uses target functors
instead of if-empty-then (with provided assert-on-empty, throw-on-empty and
nop-on-empty handlers/functors), work w/o exceptions or work in an
exception-enabled environment but only mark itself as a nothrow function, as
well as many other improvements (reduced template bloat, compiler-specific
optimizations, etc.) is already done (in an alpha-msvc only state):

Considering that interest again seems to be on the rise, maybe Doug Gregor
will finally find the time to go through all/some of these proposals and
that some changes will finally be made...and I might also finally finish my
code/changes now that I've started working with GCC...
