I was talking about boost-root/libs/iterator/doc/iterator-categories.html,
committed July 7 by Joel. That is the document I was expecting to see

Ron added that last January. He wanted something in Boost releases to refer
to, IIRC..

Wouldn't it be better to bring the Boost CVS libs/iterator/doc stuff
