I like the utlitity too, however I'm not really sure about "interned"
-- having been exposed only to the GoF Flyweight pattern.

Perhaps boost::interned<T> and boost::flyweight<T> can be made
identical or behave the same? What I would be saying really is that
boost::interned can apply the "value instance singularity" (invented
phrase, something I try to describe how I understand what the library
is doing) while boost::flyweight<T> be consistent with the GoF
flyweight description?

Would it be too much work to do this?
