I'm not sure the number of template parameters should be the bare
minimum; IMO the policies should be orthogonal, a side effect of which
is probably a lot of separate parameters.
Another suggestion: it might be useful for trees to share subtrees
(for example, in an implementation of a SGI-like "rope" class). This
makes possible cheap copies and lower memory use. Subtrees could then
have multiple parents, so that iterators do need a stack.
