The authors decided to not continue the development because at the time
Concepts should be part of C++0x. AS now Concepts do not belong to C++0x, I
have requested the resurrection of this library but no one was volunter.

There is two part of the library that match yours (Operator Traits).

The others corresponds to the definition of Concepts for STL. You can let
this for others, but IMO it will be a shame to lose the work done in this
library for Operator Traits.
