we all _know_ what min and max are - that's the problem - we have a default
predicate in mind - so min_element(begin, end, greater) doesn't work as you
would initially (intuitively) expect - to understand it generally requires
viewing it as min_indexed_element_if_ordered_by.
best and worst have the advantage of requiring a context before they can be
understood - best_element(begin, end, greater) should therefore be clear to
just about anybody (i would hope :)
