For consistency with the rest of the standard library, the non-member swap for propagate_const should call member swap.

[2015-07, Telecon]

Both P3 and NAD were suggested.

Feedback from an implementation:

The implementation of propagate_const in libstdc++ calls propagate_const's member swap from the non-member swap.

Adopted during NB comment resolution

Proposed resolution:

This wording is relative to N4529.

  1. Edit [propagate_const.algorithms] as indicated:

    -1- template <class T>
    constexpr void swap(propagate_const<T>& pt1, propagate_const<T>& pt2) noexcept(see below)

    -2- The constant-expression in the exception-specification is noexcept(swap(pt1.t_, pt2.t_)pt1.swap(pt2)).

    -3- Effects: swap(pt1.t_, pt2.t_)pt1.swap(pt2).
