I think that your library is very useful. Your library was my
motivation to finally start trying to use boost libraries... I have a
tendency to do simulation of/retracing communications. I end up needing
to match data structures by some key as well as a timestamp (for
timeouts etc...)

I've mostly just been in the sidelines reading posts... I'm new to
boost and tend not to do in depth review of implementations/docs so I
keep my mouth shut ;) I do think that I did at least give encouragement
when you first started talking about your library.

   Well, I went through your docs for the first time the other day. One
of the first things I did do was take a look at quick_reference.html and
found a lot of TO DO's.
   I've had some confusion about iterators... What I see in the docs
doesn't seem to use any template parameters for the iterators. Since
there can be multiple indicies I suspect that template parameters have
to work there way into the iterator type, begin, end, etc...
