OK. And indeed boost _is_ an extension. So I think it makes sense to
implement all these extensions in boost also (as Herve has done) and provide
them in the boost namespace.
My only remaining question is : if the STL (used by the developer) already
provides the algorithm (in the std namespace however), would'nt it be better
to reuse it. Maybe that algorithm is written in a way to offer the best
performance with that compiler ?
