hi all,

i do have a few questions regarding the integration of boost.heap into boost:

* i am using assertions. some of them verify the internal logic, some should
verify the correct usage. at the moment, the internal logic will be verified
only if BOOST_HEAP_SANITYCHECK is defined. is this reasonable? and shall i use
BOOST_ASSERT or assert for that?

* shall the sanity checks be enabled for running the unit tests?

* what is the preferred way to implement compile-time dispatching? (a) adding
static const flags to the class definition, (b) deriving from a special `tag'
class and use is_base_of or (c) implementing a separate `traits' class. at the
moment i am using (a), but maybe there is a convention?

thanks, tim
