Thanks, very interesting... substantially because you can't put a float in a
template *and* they are of the same semantical category (const-expr). Just
when they fixed the compile time evaluation rules (that's why gcc needs

Oh and I shiver at the tough of yet another 'constexpr' keyword: they should
have added *another* meaning to static :X static const non-mutable fixed
burned-in-stone variable *maybe* will be a good const definition:P:P or
maybe a new keyword *dogma* which overrides the programmer's religious

C++ is becoming more and more bloated and unmanageable. And even more slow
to compile...

/me wants defconst... these are *so* immutable that not even the compiler
sees them (like C #define but keeping type informations)
