To the extreme of having:

     auto x = Type { init };

Instead of:

     Type x(init);

...if you follow Herb Sutter to the extreme[1]. It feels quite extreme 
in the first moment, but undeniable has some inner logic if you read 
that article to the end. I am undecided by myself still since that 
proposal is that extreme. Well, but this could just mean I am getting 
old and inflexible.
