Sorry about the slow reply, I haven't been checking my email often recently.

I just uploaded a new version, which fixes a bug and removes some
unnecessary junk from the implementation.

Looking at my to do list, it's mainly just to add more tests and
examples, which probably don't strictly need to be done before a review.
There are also a few minor issues with the standard to be sorted out.

There is one problem that might be more serious. I'm not sure if
Allocator::address or the allocator comparison operators are allowed to
throw an exception. If they can, the implementation doesn't meet the
exception requirements. Actually, if the allocator comparison operators
can throw then it might not be possible to meet the swap exception
requirements for most of the standard containers. So maybe I'm missing
something. I haven't looked into this in much detail yet.
