btree_seq is better than vector in insert/delete intensive applications. Since
sorting does not require insert/delete, btree_seq will be comparable (but
slower) with vector in sorting.

I expect that after including btree_seq into boost, ptr_btree_seq will be built
upon the btree_seq, like ptr_vector upon vector. Leaves of ptr_btree_seq will
physically contain only pointers to the large objects, but the container will
have the same interface as btree_seq. (This should not take much effort, since
ptr_* implementation already exists for vector.)
