I agree. My vote is very strongly in favour of assuming that injecting
overloads/specialisations/whatever into std:: is the correct approach, and
expecting user code to so this. This is based on pragmatism (it works well,
and it doesn't break any known compilers) as opposed to theory.

I think this effectively makes Koenig lookup irrelevant in the cases I care
about - which is good, as I can't rely on it being implemented...

This needs resolving, and the results documenting somewhere prominent in a
Boost policy document.
