I have also been working on a type traits introspection library but it
is not documented yet. I did get your files from you that are the
"" in the Boost vault, which I have studied but I
prefer the technique in the CTL which is a bit more flexible barring a
VC++ ( and gcc prior to 4.0 ) bug on which I am working on a workaround.

I also have looked at Frederick Bron's code in 'is_comparable.hpp'. It
seems that should be fairly easily extended to other operators, although
I may not understand all the issues involved.

My type traits introspection library is only interested in introspecting
a type at compile time and is not interested in free functions. Nor does
it touch on the operators work done by Frederick Bron, so I feel that
should go forward on its own. Nonetheless I want to synchronize my
efforts with others who are working in this area, probably offline.
