Is there a list of supported compilers in the doc?
Currently, clang-3.1 is not supported.
(On clang-3.1, `template_id_with_cvr<int const&>().name_demangled()`
returns `const int &>::n() [T = const `.)

Please note that, in general, clang does not recommend to use
version checks, because the version number of clang is not consistent
between the vendors. For example, LLVM project's clang-3.1 is different
from Apple clang-3.1. `template_id_with_cvr<...>().name_demangled()`
returns the correct name on the latter compiler, but it returns incorrect
name on the former compiler. To distinguish these compilers, you cannot
use `__clang_major__` and `__clang_minor__` macros; maybe you need
to use `__clang_version__` macro.
