The code works with the STL version for GCC, but does not play well
with other implementations of the STL. Later, I would like Boost to
adopt these classes, but right now, I am only asking if Boost members
are interested in the abilities these containers afford.

Some questions I want Boost to ask are:

1. Do you like the class names: flex_set, flex_map, flex_multiset, and

2. How can I implement the classes to not just compile and run with
multiple compilers, but also work with existing STL implementations?
(I am in the midst of making a separate version of these containers
to work with Microsoft's STL implementation. I much prefer making
only one version of these.)

3. Do you think I overlooked anything when I implemented these?
(One suggestion is writing the containers to use an equivalence
function in the comparator.)
