The forwarding problem looks like a C++ "flaw" that can't be solved
trivially. So I'm not going to pretend to have a solution. Take a look at
<> for a
description of the problem. (I saw the link in another thread.)

I never checked how the constructors work with reference-based arguments,
either const or non-const. (I guess that const references could work since
they can take conversion-generated temporaries.)
