 * A built in concept that indicates that two
 * types are the same.  Either T or U or both
 * can be placeholders.
 *
 * \warning Any number of instances of @ref deduced
 * can be connected with @ref same_type, but there
 * should be at most one regular placeholder in
 * the group. same_type<_a, _b> is not allowed.
 * The reason for this is that the library needs
 * to normalize all the placeholders, and in this
 * context there is no way to decide whether to
 * use @ref _a or @ref _b.
