Hi Lorenzo,

Halas, it is a bit more complicated because the operator traits have
in fact 3 arguments:
template <class Lhs, class Rhs=Lhs, class Ret=dont_care>
struct has_equal_to : public true_type-or-false_type {};

So we have to deal with left hand side and right hand side case + return type.
For Lhs and Rhs arguments, it is easy because we just have to deal with Lhs=Rhs.
It is a bit more tricky with the return type.
We also have to deal with const volatile and references.

+ update of <boost/detail/container_fwd.hpp>
+ detailed testing.

I fear this is too much for 1.50 but we may plan for 1.51? It would be
a good idea to have this working.
