Just out of curiosity, did you and Chuck consider a design which supplied
bitset with a policy parameter or some other way of determining whether
allocation was static or dynamic?

bitset and dyn_bitset seem conceptually so similar it makes me wonder if
there is really a need for two different classes.

In looking at the docs, I noticed (broken) "See also" links at the
bottom. I'm looking forward to learning more about bit_vector:-)
