Thanks! I'll extend the implementation and update the documentation
around aligned_alloc accordingly.

Yes, it uses the type T alignment.

Definitely. Instead of specifying the alignment value as a template
parameter, maybe a preferable design is:

    template<class T, template<class> class A = boost::alignment_of>
    class aligned_allocator;

...where 'A' could supply different alignment values for different
rebound types.
