All I need is a priority queue with an update() operation (which of course
can potentially replace the top element), so yes, if I understood the
interface correctly, this is exactly what I need!!

It's also under pending, but I guess this one is actually used in the BGL so
is trustworthy, right?

BTW: a related question that it think you can answer:

This DS needs an index map from the IndexedType to an integral index in the
range [0,n].

But my algorithm will run over non-indexed types which might not even be
stored in a radom access container.

If I understand the propery maps library correctly, I'll need to create a
map, or hash_map, associating each and every possible value with an int, and
wrap that into an associative_property_map<> to input into the relaxed_heap

Is that right?
