I would dispute that. Boost.ConceptCheck doesn't produce minimal output
error listing, but it produces a lot less than when no concept checking
is being used. And it does point to the parameter and type constraints
which conflict. So it's better than nothing and not hard to use.

But agree that Boost.ConceptCheck is not without problems - it
was written over 12 years ago!!!. I'm sure it could be improved with
C++11+ and of course I realize that you've submitted a library to do
just that! I haven't gotten around to studying it yet - but I am
