It would be very interesting if augmented data structures could be added
to Boost.Intrusive algorithms. This way could build intrusive structures
built on augmented data structures, and on top of that, non-intrusive,
STL-like containers.

If you are interested, have a look at Boost.Intrusive implementation to
see if we could introduce augmented data structures there and benefit
more applications.
