Maxim Yegorushkin's proposal for an intrusive multi_index_container
(see at ) does not induce a new dependency
on regular multi_index; instead, it is more of a side-by-side add-on:

multi_index ------------|
                        ---> B.MI core
intrusive multi_index --|

Another surprising feature of Maxim's proposal is its very small size,
he manages to inject intrusiveness into B.MI by merely changing
a couple of files and adding a handful of new ones! My intention is
to wait for Olafs's (or now Ion's) intrusive library to start being discussed
and then perhaps convince Maxim to adopt analogous design decisions
for his proposal. I hope an intrusive multi_index_container can
eventually make it into B.MI some day.
