Could we agree on a naming scheme/implementation scheme for the
and think these identifiers are unique enough, the small amout of global
costomization-points taken into consideration.
The consequence of this is that other libraries
should always call
with qualification. This function must always fall back on
a function template which implements the default behavior.
The consequence for users is that they must
- provide hooks in their own namespace wich is then found via ADL.
- Users can specialize boost::begin, but not
- Global functions will not be found.
- derived to base-class conversion are not performed before ADL tries to
locate a function
