There has been an attempt to do something like that here (looks somewhat
useful, but far from being 'boosified):

Stated goal of this library (from

EasySTL. A supplemental library to the C++ Standard Template Library (STL)
that has three main goals.

    * Eliminate iterators from function calls (where possible).
    * Enable functional programming by modifying copies of passed containers
instead of modifying containers in-place.
    * Introduce high-level functions (like those in Lisp or Python) for
string, file and container manipulation.

    This library has been tested with Visual C++ .NET only. (I've started
moving over to VC++.NET wholeheartedly as their template and STL support is
much better now.)
