This is not a problem. It simply gets treated as an implementation
detail of the AFIO library under review. There is precedence for this
type of thing in which sometimes a useful detail becomes a stand-alone
library (after an independent review) at a later time.

We have also seen in the past that an implementation detail is too
clever or deemed unnecessary by the community. That causes the review to
bog down in territory that is not salient to the library core; however,
must be resolved.
