It's more a test of the standard library implementation that a test
of Boost, because it uses archetypes to check whether the STL
algorithms can work with types that truly satisfy only the minimum
behavior required by those algorithms. It's all corner cases in the
standard library, so failures here don't really affect how Boost will
work on that platform.
