Dan Marsden presented a Traversal Library at boostcon 2008 that IMHO
would replace the need for an explicit tree data structure. It's based
on the "Scrap Your Boiler Plate" paper that recognizes that most
programs already possess tree-like structure and more generally have
"data structures built from rich mutually-recursive data types". It's
intent is to abstract out the generic traversal mechanics allowing the
programmer to focus on the "reason for traversal".

I'm not sure where this library stands, or if Dan has continued development.
