/*! \file
    Traits defined in this header are used by various algorithms to achieve
    better performance for specific containers.
    Traits provide fail-safe defaults. If a container supports some of these
    features, it is possible to specialize the specific trait for this container.
    For lacking compilers, it is possible of define an override for a specific tester
    function.

    Due to a language restriction, it is not currently possible to define specializations for
    stl containers without including the corresponding header. To decrease the overhead
    needed by this inclusion, user can selectively include a specialization 
    header for a specific container. They are located in boost/algorithm/string/stl
    directory. Alternatively she can include boost/algorithm/string/std_collection_traits.hpp
    header which contains specializations for all stl containers.
