Curiously, last year I worried about getting a C++0x error from doing
just that: "using std::swap; swap(x,y);"! Especially when one would use
the C++0x std::Swappable concept. Douglas Gregor dedicated a blog entry
to the issue:

I really don't know. I /think/ that the current version of the
boost::swap utility should work in C++0x as well, at least in C++0x code
that doesn't have concept checking. Of course, boost::swap doesn't yet
support an rvalue as argument, like C++0x's std::swap will. But other
than that, I think it should work fine. Please let me know if I'm wrong!
Good night, Niels
