I have fixed the various naming issues: adding a const version of at();
expanding iter_offset() to begin() and end(); adding a _ at the end of the
implementation functions to prevent name hiding and to allow them to be
declared private.

I have also implemented get_allocator() and switched to a flex_string style
policty-based implementation (which resolves several issues and allows for
the compiler to better optimize the code). The implementation is still
lacking swap, but that is all.

This change has not effected the interface I have been using, so you can
still do things like:

   inline void print( boost::char_string & str )
      std::cout << str << '\n';

   int main()
      boost::fixed_string< 20 > s;
      strcpy( s, "Hello " ); // note: this does not work with Borland
      s += "Meine Welt!";

      print( s );
      for( boost::fixed_string< 20 >::reverse_iterator i = s.rbegin(); i !=
s.rend(); ++i )
         std::cout << *i;
      std::cout << '\n';
