In C++11, I can just use the standard type traits. On the other hand, in
C++11, people can just use std::shared_ptr. :-)

In principle, it might have been possible to have low-level type traits that
do not interoperate with MPL and are completely dependency-free, and a
high-level type traits that are MPL-friendly. But it doesn't make any sense
to do this now. It's almost 2014.
