Most of the remaining work is:
* finish documenting the traits that have been defined in traits/*.h
* add and document so more traits - although some is provided, there is more
that needs to be defined. Also, perhaps add some more traits from the STL2
like `is_regular` and so on.
* add more introductory documentation perhaps explaining about type
requirements and why they are needed. Also, adding a comparison between
Boost.ConceptCheck and this library.
* refine the reference documentation
A lot more work is documentation oriented, unless you see somethings that can
be improved. Just open an issue.
Also, Robert Ramey has done a lot of writing about type requirements, I would
like to see if I can utilize some of that for introductory documentation
perhaps, or maybe Robert could help with modifying some of the writings to
focus it on the Tick library with the purpose of having it included in the
