I don't have much to say apart from that I'm looking forward to the library.
Sometimes people critisize std::set/map for
using a predicate to sort the elements.
Maybe it could be possible (either by default or by policies) to
use -1,0,1 comparison instead (if it has a speed advantage).
I think Gabriel Dos Reis has some more problems with std::set, but I have
forgotten them now.
Keep up the good work! :-)
