What about !one_or_less_bit()? It has not been implemented (yet?) but 
been discussed. It ended by concluding that is_power_of_2() should be 
fixed up first and then we can see about it.
And as I stated before; !is_power_of_2(size) != (size & (size-1))! It 
may be a bug but then we have to be sure it is suppose to be the power of 2.
