Shouldn't the comparison functions allow the types to differ? I mean don't they still lexigraphically compare as long as there is a comparison function F that a F b for each element exists

circular_buffer<T, MyAlloc> x;
circular_buffer<S, YourAlloc> y;

bool b = x == y; for where the operator T == S is valid? And what does the allocator have to do with it?

Therefore IMO, all of the comparison functions should change from

template< typename T, typename Alloc>
bool operator F ( circular_buffer<T, Alloc> &lhs,
                  circular_buffer<T, Alloc> &rhs);


template< typename T1, typename Alloc1,
          typename T2, typename Alloc2>
bool operator F ( circular_buffer<T1, Alloc1> &lhs,
                  circular_buffer<T2, Alloc2> &rhs);
