Daniel --

That is exactly the direction that I want to take Boost.Algorithm - once it is accepted.
Let people propose/contribute new algorithms, have them reviewed (hopefully a much easier task than a full-blown library review), and then add them to the library.

However, first the library needs to be accepted into boost - and that won't ever happen as long as it is being added to.

So, yes - I welcome your contribution; just not yet.
