No, I implemented those contracts to experiments a bit with allocplus
Allocplus) and Interprocess also uses them. I think those contracts need
some more discussion to propose an extended, performance related
allocator interface. Then Boost.Container could support such allocators.
At the moment, Boost.Container aims to support shared memory containers
and move semantics. In the short term, it should implement C++0x
container requirements, including stateful allocator protocols.
