/// Each member of the sum type is specified by passing a \c
/// PointerSumTypeMember specialization in the variadic member argument list.
/// This allows the user to control the particular tag value associated with
/// a particular type, use the same type for multiple different tags, and
/// customize the pointer-like traits used for a particular member. Note that
/// these *must* be specializations of \c PointerSumTypeMember, no other type
/// will suffice, even if it provides a compatible interface.
/// This type implements all of the comparison operators and even hash table
/// support by comparing the underlying storage of the pointer values. It
/// doesn't support delegating to particular members for comparisons.
/// It also default constructs to a zero tag with a null pointer, whatever that
/// would be. This means that the zero value for the tag type is significant
/// and may be desirable to set to a state that is particularly desirable to
/// default construct.

/// that would fundamentally violate the type safety provided by the sum type.
