I suppose, but that might scare someone off from doing:

template<class char_type>
really_super_string : public super_string<char_type>

which is a perfectly valid way to add in a few more pet algorithms in a
consistent fashion.

That scares me a little. Someone that happens to do a using namespace std;
and using namespace boost would wind up with errors. I'm willing to entertain
other names, but I'd like to avoid the conflict here.
