There was also some work on algorithms. I have taken a very close look
at binary trees, and priority queues (Dietmar Kuehl's beta submission),
and linear-time sorting (radix, etc.) which is in the sandbox. I've also
implemented a full-fledged policy-based vector (again in the sandbox).

Before you duplicate existing work, I should signal that Jeremy created
a sequence_algo in boost-sandbox, and I contributed a more compact
implementation of is_sorted there. In addition, there is:

  template <class ForwardIterator, class T>
  void iota(ForwardIterator first, ForwardIterator last, T value);

  template <typename InputIterator, typename T>
  bool contains(InputIterator first, InputIterator last, T value);

  template <typename InputIterator, typename Predicate>
  bool all(InputIterator first, InputIterator last, Predicate p);

  template <typename InputIterator, typename Predicate>
  bool none(InputIterator first, InputIterator last, Predicate p);

  template <typename InputIterator, typename Predicate>
  bool any_if(InputIterator first, InputIterator last, Predicate p);

  template<class ForwardIterator>
  bool is_sorted(ForwardIterator first, ForwardIterator last);

  template<class ForwardIterator, class StrictWeakOrdering>
  bool is_sorted(ForwardIterator first, ForwardIterator last,
                 StrictWeakOrdering comp);

Then again, perhaps your implementation differs and/or complements

Please take a look at boost-sandbox/boost/sequence_algo/, especially:
as well as at boost-sandbox/boost/linear_sort, and
boost-sandbox/boost/policy_vector if you like.
