//! rbtree_algorithms provides basic algorithms to manipulate 
//! nodes forming a red-black tree. The insertion and deletion algorithms are 
//! based on those in Cormen, Leiserson, and Rivest, Introduction to Algorithms 
//! (MIT Press, 1990), except that
//! 
//! (1) the header node is maintained with links not only to the root
//! but also to the leftmost node of the tree, to enable constant time
//! begin(), and to the rightmost node of the tree, to enable linear time
//! performance when used with the generic set algorithms (set_union,
//! etc.);
//! 
//! (2) when a node being deleted has two children its successor node is
//! relinked into its place, rather than copied, so that the only
//! pointers invalidated are those referring to the deleted node.
//!
//! rbtree_algorithms is configured with a NodeTraits class, which encapsulates the
//! information about the node to be manipulated. NodeTraits must support the
//! following interface:
//!
//! <b>Typedefs</b>:
//!
//! <tt>node</tt>: The type of the node that forms the circular list
//!
//! <tt>node_ptr</tt>: A pointer to a node
//!
//! <tt>const_node_ptr</tt>: A pointer to a const node
//!
//! <tt>color</tt>: The type that can store the color of a node
//!
//! <b>Static functions</b>:
//!
//! <tt>static node_ptr get_parent(const_node_ptr n);</tt>
//! 
//! <tt>static void set_parent(node_ptr n, node_ptr parent);</tt>
//!

//! <tt>static void set_right(node_ptr n, node_ptr right);</tt>
