I know vector<bool> doesn't adhere to the canonical
container interface and I've read Scott Meyer's
critique of it in _Effective STL_, but I for one would
like to see it stay. I believe there is a need for a
space efficient, variably sized array of bit flags.
There may not be an alternative at the moment but
would it not be possible to do a policy based (Modern C++ Design style)
version of vector<bool> to allow for both the strict adherence to the container
interface (by default) and the space efficient version ?
Just a thought !
