As stated by another on the thread, these already exists for the
integral types. using boost::lowest_bit I added : find_first,
find_next functions. The website has been updated, and a new code
drop placed with those functions implemented.

As for "most_significant_bit_index" I have not done that yet. Can you
think of an example case where that would be helpful?

Thank you for the feedback.
