Nod, could be my template metaprogramming that's at fault.... I can't help
thinking that if I rolled my own ET's I could eliminate most of those by
rolling the functionality directly into the operator overloads.... of course
that may end up being even worse :-(

Anyhow I've filed a bug report on the ADL issue,
