Ok thanks but I would still suggest to use references to pointer
arguments, that would improve efficiency.

I added minimalistic support for allocator_traits and pointer_traits and
in trying to compile the following file with MSVC 2015:

I still have 3 compilation errors which aren't so obvious to figure
