The tools are fine, its just that the docs didn't specifically address
the case where min and max are called with explicit template
arguments, e.g.:
    std::min<std::size_t>(x, y);

However, as Andrey pointed out:
>min and max are function-like macros. The code above is not affected by those.

That answers my question. It might be worth adding a sentence
describing this case to to clarify.
