> I like it better than Jonathan's, and my first _CONSTEXPR_1, _CONSTEXPR_0 because of the single macro that is either going to be constexpr or not.  The source code won't be as compact, but I find it more readable (though just a little too verbose).
> Jonathan, I really appreciate you're work in <limits> and <random> and sorry about thrashing you around on this issue.  But I felt it important to hammer this out before we get too invested in the wrong strategy, as we already are with my ill-fated:

Oh, no problem: First of all adapting my patch took me about 10 minutes, and second of all I did it on a whim,
so any unnecessary work done by me is my own fault :-)

I prepared a new patch using _LIBCPP_CONSTEXPR and have it attached. Please review and, if ok, commit.

With many thanks in advance,
