Sadly, I think it's probably too late for these improvements to make it in,
but there's still a chance...

I understand the reasons, but don't think I agree. Utility is such a
catch-all that it makes sense to have at least one category that shows all
of its functionality.

If you send me a proposed patch to the libraries page, I'll be happy to
incorporate it.

BTW, base_from_member.html consistently says "template class", where the
modern usage is "class template". Even the C++ standard is being revised to
use the latter wording.
