  Substitution failure is not an error. Wasn't that where if the 
template use/instantiation failed it would go onto the next one 
(and hope one of them worked)? Although it could work assuming 
you have enough templates to handle the cases, being able to 
determine if they quality (as in D) is a superior solution.

  Reminds me... Wasn't there a problem with the min/max in C++ 
where to correctly make it work there was some 90+ templates for 
the STL? (I think it was rejected). Makes you wonder sometimes 
what they are thinking when they decide this stuff.
