>Description:
In playing with PR 3907, I found that this compiles:
------------------------------
template <int s> struct U {};
template <int s> struct C : U<zs_zs_zs>{};
------------------------------
Is this supposed to work? I could not find anything in
the standard, but I'm surprised it compiles cleanly.
Of course I cannot instantiate C, since zs_zs_zs is not
known.

Further playing tells me that this has something to do
with (the non-existence of)two-stage name lookup, since
this compiles:
--------------------------
template <int s> struct U {};
template <int s> struct C : U<zs_zs_zs>{};

const int zs_zs_zs = 3;
C<1> c1;
--------------------------
