what is needed for the lexicographic class to be included into boost?
if it is a formal review (probably a really short one) i want to request
  it. maybe it can also be reviewed together with other utility components.

the current version is in the boost-sandbox and consists of the
following three files:

and again a small decription

It is a small class which helps to avoid error-prone if-else cascades if
a certain lexicographic order for different sorting criteria has to be


struct person
        int age;
        std::string firstname, lastname;

bool operator < (person const &p1, person const &p2)
        return boost::lexicographic
                (p1.lastname, p2.lastname, cmp_lower)
                (p1.firstname, p2.firstname, cmp_lower)
                (p2.age, p1.age);


std::set <person> group;

now the member of group are sorted after last name in ascending order
independent of lower or upper case. if the last name is equal they are
sorted after the first name in the same manner, and if the whole name is
equal they are sorted according to their age, with old people in front
of the set.
