Yes, many Boost containers support emplace*() methods. In C++11, STL
containers also support it.

I'm not sure I understand. Do you intend to store pointers in flat_set? If so,
you can store std::unique_ptr's or shared_ptr's and specify your custom
ordering predicate to order pointers by their pointees.
