Which set is "Mark's set"? The last one I posted ~100 minutes ago using the signatures mentioned by Mark and including an implementation?

It's still slower depending on the cost of the move, only for some classes the compiler can optimize that cost away. Anyways, let's explore the best "return rvalues" version. I think the last version I posted should be really close, except if someone can come up with a pass-by-value version and expressions where it works better in practice.
I think that for now we might start with the code I posted and if future compilers are able to support and optimize pass-by-value to allow even better code, we might detect these compilers and use a different implementation.
