It seems that all that might be interested have already spoken. Base on
rather small interest, I think that it might be best to go the way that
you have proposed.

I like the idea of possible integration with Boost.Algorihtm, the bigger
library might
take better attention.

So from this point, you have my blessings.

Anyway if there is anybody with a better idea, feel free to express it.
