I don't have time to comment very thoroughly, but I can say that it does
interesting. In the project I'm working on now I needed to sort the pointers
several containers which was not that hard.

You can avoid your handcoded loop by something like

transform( ..., &address_of );

of course you would have to resize the destination vector, but wouldn't you
do that
anyway to save some allocations?

What would have been nice was some kind of template that could generate
oprator<, operator= etc
if there was a non-pointerversion of the class.
