I agree. The top-level directory is overpopulated. Shouldn't this live in
Boost.Container next to string? That library's introduction exactly fits
what this is (one of the "latest draft features").
Thanks for donating this Marshall. I've used something similar with
Boost.Spirit before and seen big speed improvements, so I'd like to try
your implementation out.
