I fully concur with the above statement.

Why do you think Peter's implementation is better? AFAIU it's a
prototype. Is it that good that you think it would be better to use it
as a base? It certainly must be more clear/elegant since it relies on
C++11 features. I'm guessing that after adding the move emulation for
C++98, optimizations, workarounds, etc. the code would look different.
Close to Ion's maybe?

Without checking out the code IMHO more reasonable approach would be to
take more complete implementation and then port some nice solutions from
the other one but of course I may be missing something.
