+9 for this.
But I have a question about Boost.Move:
Because the problem Boost.Move addresses is so important, and Boost.Move wasn't around, my existent code uses efficient implementations of "swap" as a substitute. The documentation shows that Boost.Move can be used to implement an efficient swap. But what about the other direction? Can Boost.Move exploit an existent efficient swap?
