If you're copying from a non-const object, the universal constructor will match a "MyType &" before the copy constructor's "MyType const &" would! This is what's causing the conflict.

I did it in (, so check if it works for you now. Of course, if you or someone else here has a better construction, let me know and I'll try it instead. (It still has to work for me on GCC-4.6, though.)
