I'm not too familiar with the upcoming standard proposals. After this
talk I feel I could go and reimplement most of my template libraries
with concepts fairly easily. So kudos to you.

One thing that is central to the STL that I might have missed from this
talk is complexity guarantees. Is there a way to promise STL's big O
complexity guarantees with concepts?
