I have replaced the dead links, and placed unfinished comments next
to documentation that are yet to be complete.

I have added a large note at the top of pages with shared
functionality, so any, none, select, iterators, pack, unpack, and
flip should all say that these functions are equivalent across
bit_containers: bit_array, bit_vector, bit_container adaptor.

I have added template argument list documentation to all classes, and
class template functions.

It is there. bit_array<16>::static_size is an enum of value 16. This
is done the same as you would find with boost::array<int,
10>::static_size .

Thank you for your feedback.
