But a lot of containers were made before the initiative for sub-namespaces.
Some library has to volunteer to be the first of a new namespace. Also,
isn't "multi_index" longer than "container" (unless you were going to add an
inner sub-namespace, which probably would be too much)? Would any other
type besides your current ones ever qualify to go into a "multi_index"
namespace? We should limit the number of exclusive namespaces (unless the
library is ridiculously huge, like Regex or Spirit).
