Those are very helpful links. While benchmarks obviously only
approximate real-world performance, I would be very interested in
comparing the various approaches using a standard task. By providing a
solution to a small "real world" problem, it enables you (the Boost
developers) to compare both the performance and how a library looks like
to use in practice, and is much more preferable to hypothesising. And
we can also compare to the "STL" solution to see whether relational
templates/queries really do make an application easier to develop.
