I'm glad to say that now "GC Allocator" is a sandbox library of boost.

To gain the source code, please svn checkout


   - simple_examples.cpp<>
   - stl_containers.cpp<>

Welcome to give me some suggestions or report defects.

I'm a beginner of boost development. And I don't know the process of boost
peer review, and how a library is accepted (upgraded). Anyone can help me?
