Re: Make class template parameters available externally

We could also use export for this purpose. However there is already a
method of opting-in to this.
This also poses a question of what to do with non-type template parameters
that have class types, as is being introduced in C++20.
Would the declaration be constexpr decltype(auto) Name{Name}; (so it would
be a reference) or constexpr auto Name{Name}; (so it would be a value, and
copy the parameter)?
