First time I saw something like thins in a C++ code base, I thought "That's clever!" It was only the second thought that I remembered how much I bloody hate maintaining such "clever" solutions.
We coders tend to be attracted to logical puzzles. It takes willpower to steer away from something clever in favor of something simple.

Either that or enough experience to know how much of a PITA clever code can be.
