Hi all,

Shouldn't the remove_pointer doc [] under type_traits
library make mention of and link to the pointee doc
[]? (I must say that I've been wholly ignorant
of the latter in the couple of years that I've been using boost, since I
always expected it to be under type_traits.) Additionally, it would be
great if it was explained why it's not part of the type_traits library,
since, at least I believe, it's not very obvious.

One last question, why is pointee under the iterator library docs, when it
also deals with shared_ptrs? Shouldn't it fall under the utility doc? (The
iterator doc would be the last place I would look if I wanted to find
something on shared_ptrs.)
