Ed, I looked into partial specializations and it looks like, while not
trivial, it would be easy enough for me to do them. However, it is
not required for concepts (which can not be specialized), so should I
fix them for this patch or as a separate patch later?
I see no reason why we can't add features in stages. I just wondered if
you had already given it a look. Certainly constexpr variable templates
are useful on their own.

Tests like g++.dg/cpp1y/pr59638.C produce extra failures if this is
changed. Is there something I'm supposed to do to account for that?
Fair enough, but in that case let's use 'sorry' rather then 'error'
to be clear that it's a missing feature.
