My impression was that the Boost Vault is intended for libraries on the
Boost candidate track, that is they're put there with an eye to
eventually submitting them for inclusion the the Boost libraries. If
that's true, it's not really appropriate for this stuff.

That sounds just right for these functions. They are specific to
multi-arrays so they don't belong on the AlgorithmExtensions page, but
I'd like to create a Boost.MultiArray/Algorithms page which could be
added to as people adapt more algorithms for use with multi_arrays. Do I
need to get somebody's ok for this, or can I just dive right in?

(While we're at it, a "jeff's cool date time extensions" Wiki page might
be nice too. ;-))
