Here's the wiki entry on the CRTP:

http://c2.com/cgi/wiki?CuriouslyRecurringTemplate

and the D Programming Language implementation of it:

class ArithmeticType(T)
{
    T opAdd(T other)
    {
        T result = new T(this);
        result += other;
        return result;
    }
}

class Quaternion: ArithmeticType!(Quaternion)
{
    this() { }
    this(ArithmeticType!(Quaternion) t) { }

    Quaternion opAddAssign(Quaternion other)
    {
         // etc.
    }
}

So now there are two languages that can do the CRTP <g>.

Cool!  Thanks for pointing this out.  :)
