OK. At some point "does it compile with the tools we have?" trumps "does the 
standard allow it?" anyway. There must be some subtlety I'm missing there.

What would help in this specific case is a complete test program (from Alex) 
(with no dependency on an installed KDE, if possible) that exercises this 
stuff so we can just throw it at the non-gcc compilers and see what happens.

Elegance trumps dealing-with-possibly-supported-template-features every time.
