True, but for template code doing so (and testing with concept
archetypes etc) is nearly always very instructive IMO.

I feel the need less for overload resolution based on concepts, although
every now and then I have a need for "this function accepts any
container of integers" or some such. Even then, type_traits + enable_if
get surprisingly close.
