I could take a look at it in a week or two. There are a lot of other
things that would be useful, like spline interpolation, FFT, etc. The
only downside is that most of those algorithms could be implemented in
two seconds using other open source software as the back end (clapack or
fftw3 or gsl or whatever), so it seems like a waste to re-do that just
to get them into boost.

Fair enough. In any case, it's a pretty straightforward thin wrapper
around ordered_inserter that I might just use for myself anyway.

That's probably the best option.

I did think about this library some more since I wrote this, and I'm
getting excited about using it in my next project.
