Hi Alexander,

I also suggest providing results of some performance tests.

Any data structure that performs better than std::vector is very important
in practical applications. High linear computational cost of insertion and
erasure operations of this default STL container often leads to performance
bottlenecks in user algorithms. A comparison with std::vector is essential
to convince Boost users in the usefulness of your data structures.

The design method you used looks similar to augmenting a data structure.
There are two projects in Boost review queue that implement STL containers
based on two types of augmented trees: "STL Extensions" and "Countertree",
for more details see . It
would be helpful and interesting to see comparison of performance of your
data structures with the data structures waiting for review.
