Subject: [boost] [algorithm] any_of does not call std::find - bad performance

Is there a particular reason why Boost.Algorithm's any_of does not call
std::find? I have devised a simple benchmark that shows it to perform
much worse (compiling with gcc):
boost::find is almost as fast as std::find - no surprises, as it calls
it. any_of is considerably slower, whatever the optimization level.
I have not dug in the implementation of std::find to determine why;
perhaps the compiler recognizes this is a sorted range, perhaps it's
even capable of doing the calculation at compile time. Whatever the case
however, surely any_of should also call std::find to reap the same benefits?
