As a proposed addition to Boost.Algorithm, my understanding is
that this applies (from the Boost.Algorithm introduction):

   I will be soliciting submissions from other developers, as
   well as looking through the literature for existing algorithms
   to include. [...]

   My goal is to run regular algorithm reviews, similar to the
   Boost library review process, but with smaller chunks of code.

To date I don't believe that any code other than the originally-
reviewed content has been added to Boost.Algorithm. Marshall,
are you reading this? How do you propose to handle it?

Regards, Phil.
