Discussion:

N2111 changes min/max in several places in random from member functions to static data members. I believe this introduces a needless backward compatibility problem between C++0X and TR1. I'd like us to find new names for the static data members, or perhaps change min/max to constexprs in C++0X.

See N2391 and N2423 for some further discussion.

Proposed resolution:

Adopt the proposed resolution in N2423.

[ Kona (2007): The LWG adopted the proposed resolution of N2423 for this issue. The LWG voted to accelerate this issue to Ready status to be voted into the WP at Kona. ]
