The only real use for them that I know is with non-built-in types that lack conversion to/from int. (This arises with explicit ctors, etc.) But since boost policy wants user-defined types to be convertible, the int (1) is better than the subroutine one(), etc. I guess this was a relic in my brain. Sorry. Best regards, Chris.
