It's the "if" clause there that's causing problems.

Yeah... it's easy to return pessimistic results, though. I don't want to
start a discussion here and now (wrong list, and I don't have the time), but
once I get these concept-checking changes out of my local tree, I have some
ideas to propose on the libstdc++ list.
Would I had phrases that are not known, utterances that are strange, in
new language that has not been used, free from repetition, not an utterance
which has grown stale, which men of old have spoken.
