| Now I see,

it will work on some libraries where it is guaranteed that a user defined swap
be found.

well, I think there is a key number of few algorithms which cover
99.9 % or the use cases.

In partucular, I think


is good enough.

they should be member functions to reflect their special semantics and to
the example of std::list..

I've basically done it, but thanks anyway.
