Defaulted Overloaded Post [Inc/Dec]rement Operators

I have seen some implementations where the majority of the definition of
overloaded post-increment or decrement are common.

I proposed a feature where you can only "explicitly" default the following

class_name operator++(int) = default;
class_name operator--(int) = default;

where they both rely on the pre-increment and decrement operators. The
rough equivalent may be:

class_name operator++(int) {
  auto temp = *this;
  return temp;

class_name operator--(int) {
  auto temp = *this;
  return temp;

I hope this one could help even if it's a minor addition.
