Agreed; perhaps my question was not clear. If there was a Traits-like
proposal that did include new syntax, would you be against it because
you can implement something similar as a library without needing new
semantics, or would you be more inclined to reserve judgement until
you could actually review a proposal and see what the proposed
benefits were?
