Yes, as I just replied to Jeremy - I think += (and zero size construction)
would be the only essential thing missing from dyn_bitset, making it a full
replacement for vector<bool>. The other capabilities I mentioned are
conveniences, which I think are useful enough to consider adding, either as
members or stand-alones. I'm partly fishing for "hey, neat, I'd use that" or
"nah - don't really need it, too esoteric, why don't you keep that in your

Subject: Re: [boost] Dynamic sized bitset
The original bitstring class overloaded += to append a bit to the container.
I don't have dyn_bitset with me to check it right now, but that's a
reasonable addition if it doesn't support it. += was removed (along with
many other methods) when bitstring was shoehorned into STL as vector<bool>.
All are candidates for dyn_bitset.
