 Yes of course, but in this case I don't think the use case presented is so
 prominent as to deserve a dedicated built-in feature.

 multi_index required a different function, but it can use the same as
 std::set. So it probably shouldn't be a member function.

 What's wrong with the example find_ptr function template given above? It
 should work with any container providing a find member function --I don't
 see the need to have separate functions for map, set, etc.
