Subject: Re: [boost] [container] moving a pre-built vector into a flat_set
From: Seth (bugs_at_[hidden])

It strikes me that more containers could enjoy this mechanism.

Perhaps we need a concept for "MovableContiguousContainer" and
"MovableContiguousStorage". Perhaps with sub concepts for the aligned
versions too.

Because I can totally see `basic_string<T>::basic_string(vector<T>&&)`
and `std::vector<T>::vector(basic_string<T>&&)` being helpful just the

So, if we think about this beyond the scope of flat_* then we might
actually create something that could be proposed for future c++.

Thinking of `flat_set<T>::flat_set(MovableContiguousStorage<T>&&)`¹
