Quick Question:
  Why does it save a state_type * const s;
  vs, a state_type & ?
  If there were default constructors, and therefore a need to set a "null"
state I'd understand that, but there aren't.

- Documentation:
  Needs a couple of examples for those less proficient with iostate issues.

- Credits:
  I know that I saw an iostate class on c.l.c.m Do a google search, and list
that person(s) as the originator in addition to Daryle Walker.

I did and found this earlier reference

That's not to say that Daryle didn't either re-invent the idea, or that it's
become part and parcel of C++ standard usage, but I think the historical
acknowledgement should exist.

- Acceptance:
YEAH! I've got only the one that Greg wrote and these are all very useful
