I agree with Thorsten and will be interested in the results
of the tests. I think the ptr_containers need more work,
but I don't think they should be replaced because something
might be better. If an alternative proves to be better and
is adopted by people, the ptr_containers will not be used
and will be a footnote in history. In the meantime I think
the competition between approaches is interesting.
