Are you sure?
I know it's in libstdc++ and I bet libc++ has it too.

There are several such traits. Traits tell you properties of a type, some
properties cannot be detected without compiler "magic", and the library
trait is the standard interface to that magic.
What would you prefer, an operator like noexcept? Why would that be better?
