Subject: Re: [boost] safe-bool CRTP class

Such a class is already in Boost, in two places:
smart_ptr also has a version.
Attached is a modified version of this that incorporates portability code from
the smart_ptr version into the variant of the spirit safe_bool that Hartmut and
I use at work.
I like to have a macro for this, so I have an operator that's convertible to the
safe_bool class, which is itself convertible to bool (this avoids problem with
the need for "typename" in the macro in certain contexts). The safe_bool class
is itself convertible to bool.
Feel free to incorporate any of this code into whatever comes out of this thread.
