Well, it is always a design trade-off. If we did that, then people who
need to know the index of the null value is in trouble.

I do think it would make sense to add some utility iterator/range:

boost::ptr_vector<T> vec;
BOOST_FOREACH( T& e, boost::filter_nulls(vec) )

or something. I'm open to naming ideas :-)

Can you be more specific? I have some trouble knowing the precise problem.
