Hm, but that can be a _very_ thin wrapper even declared inside Replicate 
(basically the code I gave is sufficient). It doesn't need to be a full-blown 
ConstRef class with all its problems. The more I think about it, the less I 
like the template solution. Even with static asserts, the error message will 
look radically different from what a user might expect. And the type ConstRef 
could be named "MustBeInstantiatedFrom" or "ExactType", so that the candidate 
list would read:

candidates are:
  Replicate::Replicate(ExactType<const T&>)
  Replicate::Replicate(const Replicate&);
  [... whatever else ...]
