    /// @details A considerable number of libraries require an instance of a class
    /// provided (storage created and initialized). For example,
    /// @code
    ///    Type result;
    ///    ...
    ///    istream >> result;
    /// @endcode
    /// In generic code that results in the Default Constructibility requirement imposed
    /// on every type 'Type' to be used with the respective code. Inevitably, that requirement
    /// a) either excludes all the classes that for various reasons do not meet that requirement or
    /// b) imposes certain (not necessarily desirable) design/implementation onto respective classes.
    ///
    /// Deployment of boost::make_default() eliminates the Default Constructibility requirement with
    /// @code
    ///    Type result = boost::make_default<Type>();
    ///    ...
    ///    istream >> result;
    /// @endcode
    /// Classes with no default constructor can now be included via a boost::make_default() specialization:
