well, i hope, you use the stack in a manner, that the limitations (aba
problem, memory reclamation) are not an issue ...

i would be in favor of a safe implementation of a stack, though ... i
have a version of a stack, using the pass-the-buck algorithm, which i
intended to port to boost.lockfree ...
maybe i find some time to do so in the next few days ...

cheers, tim

The first question I ask myself when something doesn't seem to be
beautiful is why do I think it's not beautiful. And very shortly you
discover that there is no reason.
