Darn, normally I'd say that the older version has priority over the name,
however in this case since aligned_storage is part of the TR, I'm leaning
toward agreeing that we should rename the old version.

I notice that the old version isn't documented anywhere, but I also note
from the mailing list that at least one person is using it in his/her own

So I'm not sure how best to handle this, Eric, any thoughts?
