Does this function need to have a body at all?  It seems like a
metaprogramming function, and pure declarations generally suffice for those.

If it does need an actual body, it could just be "abort();" with no return
statement.  Anything else requires you to have a way to actually produce
a value of an arbitrary type from nothing, which is in general not
possible.  Even your old method is vulnerable to types with inaccessible
or deleted copy constructors.
