Hi all,

Could we agree on a naming scheme/implementation scheme for the

I prefer




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
