I think it safe to say that if a feature is in a CTP, it is extremely
likely to appear in a production compiler sooner rather than later.
One can therefore state, with some certainty, what featureset a
VS2015 will as a minimum likely have.
I certainly can see that generalised constexpr will be hard for
Microsoft. They'd need an internal constexpr-only C++ compiler as
theirs is not an AST based compiler.
