I could maybe help. I developed some general binary search tree, red-black
tree, and avl tree algorithms not too long ago, both recursive and
non-recursive variants (where applicable) and all policy-based. I had a
need for the algorithms to be separated from the data structures since the
comparison function could be supplied dynamically, hence needn't (and
probably couldn't) be maintained by the data structure. And I thought it
would be a fun exercise.

I will take a look at these other tree data structures in the near future...
