aligned_storage.hpp can be found inside the folder 'class optional' on the
It is based on work initiated by Douglas Gregor, which uses a technique
similar to that in Andrei's paper.
Brian Parker also submitted a equivalent class, which can be found at:
bjp_utilities04112001.zip, in the Files Section.
I think it could be a good idea to formalize these works and have such a
facility in boost.
