On that note, do we want to fix type_traits/alignment_of, or have it
leverage align/alignment_of? alignment_of in align is more conforming
to the specification, supports T[] incomplete types, and appears to
work for more cases too.

(John, check out,
which Peter improved vastly, and try it with boost::alignment_of
instead of boost::alignment::alignment_of).

If the former (fixing up type_traits/alignment_of) is the best
approach, I can probably submit a PR for that. If the latter route is
preferable, we could just change type_traits/alignment_of.hpp to:

    #include <boost/alignment/alignment_of.hpp>

    namespace boost {
        using boost::alignment::alignment_of;

(Boost.Align doesn't depend on Boost.Type_Traits, so there are no
concerns there).
