Hello Andrey,

That feature is there on the future work section, but
for the moment being I don't really know when/if is going to
be provided. The main problem with documenting the internal
interface of indices is that I'd be bound to freeze it, and
as it happens I've had ocassionally the need to modify the
interface or augment it to support new funcionalities or
optimize some aspects.

I'm curious about those special indices you've been in need
of. If they are of general interest and you want to contribute
the code maybe they can be adapted and included into the lib.
Also, maybe if you explain their purpose we can come up with
a way to have the functionality with the current public
interface of Boost.MultiIndex.
