The error is still the same.

./constexpr_test.cpp: In function ‘int main(int, char**)’:
./constexpr_test.cpp:20:21: in constexpr expansion of ‘arr.array<T,
n>::at<int, 5u>(10u)’
./constexpr_test.cpp:7:36: error: expression ‘<throw-expression>’ is
not a constant-expression
./constexpr_test.cpp:20:23: note: in template argument for type ‘int’
./constexpr_test.cpp:20:26: error: invalid type in declaration before ‘;’ token
./constexpr_test.cpp:21:14: error: request for member ‘get’ in ‘a’,
which is of non-class type ‘int’

The constructor doesn't make any difference, it's the at() method body
that causes the error.

The disappointing part is that the error message itself does not point
to the source of the problem and is misleading. The note before the
error mentions the method arguments but (a) it will not necessarily be
displayed by various IDEs and (b) it doesn't point out the problem
(i.e. that 10 > 5). If only it was possible to overload at() based on
constexpr qualification and use static_assert to display the
