Yeah, and I would like to fine override some libc functions for just some classes: maybe all boost functions should have all possible libc function pointers as optional parameters? Just accept you're trying to do something unordinary, which is not worthy to support generally. IMO of course. Try to implement what you need through compiler support or some cunny compiler/linker tricks.
No need for the sarcasm here. His suggestion really was not odd at all. As for having such requirements as a part of required boost coding standards, I don't think that's necessary as it should be handled on a library-by-library basis (speak up during review if you have a strong opinion on it). For specific, accepted libraries for which you feel the need for such behavior, you should talk to the library maintainer. Having control over allocators is a very reasonable request.
