Subject: [boost] Approximate matching to Boost.Algorithm

Hello. I want to discuss about some proposals. I am working on Levenshtein distance and Damerau-Levenshtein distance algortihms. I hope, that these implementations will be pulled to the Boost String library.

But i think that we can add to the Boost String Library some more algorithms for fuzzy searhing. You can find this list here:
1)Hamming Distance
2)Jaccard Distance
3)Jaro Distance
4)Jaro-Winkler Distance
5)Levenshtein Distance
6)Longest Common Subsequence
7)Longest Common Substring
8)Overlap Coefficient
9)Ratcliff-Obershelp Similarity
10)Sorensen-Dice Distance
11)Tanimoto Coefficient

Maybe something else...
What do you think about this idea? If you think that it can be implemented to the Boost String Algo, i will start work on this list immediately.

Best regards, Zaitsev Alexander.
