The code I posted at the end is somewhat similar
to the code for handling the arguments, I suppose.
You only need the conversion, not the checks, since
the return value automatically has the correct type,
modulo any bugs in the concept definition.

Since you don't need the iterator, why don't
you just return bool?

template<class C, class T>
struct has_insert {
  static bool apply(C& c, const T& t)
    return c.insert(t).second;

// basic concept_interface
