thanks. after giving it some thought, then I also agree with myself :-)

yeah, something like that.

Managed container is a good name. To recap, I think these are good condidates:

Boost. Managed Container
Boost. Managed Pointer Container
Boost. Pointer Container
Boost. Clonable Container
Boost. Clonable Pointer Container
Boost. Cloned Container

My personal favourite would be Boost.Cloned Container
with class names like this:


When I think about it, I see cloning as the most central concept; in fact, the
only new policy of the containers is the CloneAllocator.
