Something this boost newbie would find valuable would be the equivalent of
codeproject.com (or a Boost section within codeproject ... there is a
section for STL).

http://www.codeproject.com/vcpp/stl/

This might be yet another repository for code examples and "best practices"
that are "peer reviewed" ... and there is certainly as element of "survival
of the fittest".
