OK. It sounds like the rel_ops operators were a mistake to include in the
standard. So are there any plans to remove them from the standard?
What will be the standing of libstdc++ if rel_ops breaks libstdc++ or
Is this a problem with other implementations of C++?
From: Nathan Myers
Yes. It is not the iterator operators that break rel_ops, but rather
the rel_ops operators that break the iterator operators, as indeed they
break all similar operators.
The rel_ops operators are not useful. They were a mistake. If you
insist on using them, you will have trouble. Nobody will care, because
you asked for it.
