I've improved the implementation of aligned_allocator_adaptor; it does
two things that I believe SIMD's version does not do yet:
1. It supports C++11 minimal allocators which do not need to provide
all typedefs beyond value_type
2. It supports C++11 allocators which have 'pointer' as a smart
pointer (or otherwise non-raw pointer) type


I'd be happy to contribute this functionality to SIMD's allocator
adaptor, via a patch or pull request, if you're interested.
