Subject: [Heaps] Compiler error: ‘optional’ was not declared in this scope

Dear All,

I'm trying to do some simple tests with the proposed Heaps library, but
I get a mountain of compiler errors that start like this:

./boost_heap-HEAD-449f378/boost/heap/priority_queue.hpp:32: error:
‘optional’ was not declared in this scope
./boost_heap-HEAD-449f378/boost/heap/priority_queue.hpp:32: error:
template argument 1 is invalid
./boost_heap-HEAD-449f378/boost/heap/priority_queue.hpp:32: error:
expected unqualified-id before ‘,’ token

I thought this was probably due to me having a too-old boost
installation, but I believe I'm now compiling with 1.46.1 and I get the
same error (though I need to verify that my paths are all set
correctly). Any ideas anyone?

(I've arrived late to this review having been away, but I'd like to do
some quick benchmarks if I have time.)

Thanks, Phil.
