For static-size nodes I'm using a container based on boost::array. Unfortunately this means that default constructors of stored Values are called when the container is created. I'd like not to expect that Values have their default ctor implemented. I've implemented an alternative container using boost::aligned_storage. This is just a proof of concept. The code is available here:

As I've written, it's a proof of concept no a ready container, but
implemented operations are safe.
I don't see a way to implement non-throwing swap since I don't want to
use some external storage. So swap probably won't be implemented - just
