OK - it's all crystal clear now ... NOT. I don't see a consensus here.

I'm liking the idea of implementing boost::is_constant_evaluated() back
to C++11 which a default value of false if there is not compiler
support. Along with a boost config style feature macro so we'd have a
unified model.

Personally, I've never found compile times to be a big problem. I'm not
saying that there is no compile time cost - just that it doesn't seem so
much that it's been worth worrying about.
