Hi Francisco,

I am sure that you will enjoy this development and the moment when you
first time compare performance of std::accumulate() against

Even though I develop augmented B+ trees, I think that, it is very
important to have various augmented RB-trees, since they are basic data
structure of many containers in STL. These trees would help understand what
useful extensions they can provide for STL containers and algorithms.

As for implementation approach, you can use whichever you think is the best
one. From my experience, if an approach is correct then development is fast
and smooth.

Keep in mind that there is an interest in data structures with multiple
augmenting (>2). This is certainly possible, but at the moment I do not
know if there is a general approach. Your experience with augmented
RB-trees will be interesting for me.
