Actually, there's a way to get around this by templating
the selector:

template <class Allocator>
struct garys_containerS { };

template <class Allocator, class T>
struct container_gen< garys_containerS<Allocator>, T>
  typedef garys_container<T, Allocator> type;

The problem with this is that the value_type that will go into the container is
really an implementation detail that the user shouldn't have to know
