Well, the library admittedly has a lot of features, but labelling it "smart" is
of little help to the casual reader. Besides, a humble std::map is actually
very smart, isn't it?
I'd concentrate on what's perceived as the main characteristic, all the other
goodies nonwithstanding. IMHO, indirection is the key here, so what
about Indirect Containers?
