So you are basically saying to rename tokenizer_policy.hpp to
tokenizer_iterator.hpp and put tokenizer_policy in detail?

Could you give some examples of when this would cause problems? Right
now I see it as a rather nice convenience class, but I am willing to
be enlightened.

Doesn't punct_space_separator provide all the functionality in
strtok, namely using single characters as delimiters? However, I
think having the extended functionality of your class would be a
bonus. As to the regex tokenizer function, I do not have much
experience with regex and regular expressions, so I probably would
not be the one to write it. If someone could write one, I would be
glad to include it in the functions.
