Before we get completely distracted by red-black-trees and
boost hash containers, I second Dean's idea:

> STLPort).

However, I think it would be better to have defines like
BOOST_SGI_SLIST and BOOST_SGI_HASH_MAP which could be used
like this:


Rationale: Some versions of the C++ library have these
extensions in odd places such as <ext/hash_map>.

I consider this a stopgap fix until we can provide decend
boost hash containers with sufficient flexibility.
