Evidently I'm not using the correct quickbook or boostbook terminology for
the various hierarchical constructs in documentation, but I meant as a
separate *top-level* section, separate from the section summarizing the
metafunction-generating macros BOOST_TTI_HAS_. I'm probably nit-picking at
this point. But it might insulate those users from going through too much
information if all they want to do is simple top-level introspection
queries. I know when I was going through the documentation, MEMBER_TYPE /
member_type_ seemed like lost and forlorn children after the big table of
HAS_ / has_. Just a thought.
