Could variant2 use type_traits on = to require that RHS is int or
short(optionally + const and & and volatile :) )?
I know this will not help with all types(eg std::string or std::vector),
but for PODs it would be nice if we could keep out all the exceptions
outside variant.
Users could still use SometimesBad(that throws sometimes on operator int),
but they would need to do do the conversion to int before assignment.
