It would be good to have those things. The best resources would probably
be the BGL book, as well as books like "Generic Programming and the STL"
(which is on generic programming in general). Otherwise, you'd probably
need to just look at the BGL code and documentation and the papers on BGL
and GGCL (from the 1998-2000 time frame, mostly).
