The non-polluting macros might be the best, long-term solution.

I've ruled out something like this, due to ODR violations:

    #ifdef _GLIBCXX_ADD_TR1_TO_STD
    namespace std { namespace tr1 {} }
    namespace __gnucxx_tr1 = std::tr1;
    namespace std {
    namespace __gnucxx { namespace tr1 {} }
    namespace __gnucxx_tr1 = __gnucxx::tr1;
    namespace __gnucxx {
    namespace tr1 {
    // type traits definitions...
    } }

But how about always declaring the TR1 traits in our private namespace
and conditionally pulling them into std with a strong using?  If strong
using works properly (there are currently a couple of bugs IIRC) that
should do what we want, shouldn't it?

Alternatively, for a _really_ shoddy attempt, we could just declare them
in our namespace and use (non-strong) using decls to pull them into std.
That wouldn't be conforming, but it's only a TR so we aren't obliged to
be strictly conforming. Maybe.


There are only 10 types of people in the world -
Those who understand binary, and those who don't.
