I don't understand the fuzz about using "<>". It's not even close to 
being C(++)-ish, because it was used for describing discrete range 
types _at least_ in Ada's generics back in 1983[*] already.
Perhaps someone should take a look at those, because these are also 
quite different from C++-templates.


[*] That would be the same year the term "C++" just appeared first in 
history of programming languages then, and this particular C++ didn't 
even have templates yet.
