They are, no question about it. It's mostly a question of supporting MSVC
6-class compilers, and partially a question of dependencies (type_traits,
for example).

I suspect I can do much better in a hypothetical 100% TR1 bind that only
targets 100% conforming compilers (and can freely use other TR1 libraries).
But what would the point be? Isn't Lambda supposed to fill that role? ;-)
