Well, for sure *is* an extension and therefore should be documented. I 
agree with you.

On the other hand, I'm not sure about which is the current stance of the 
project wrt this kind of extensions: should they be sooner or later 
sequestered somewhere or not? I agree that they should not be harmful 
(Not Our Problem :-) but they are neither part of the ISO/ANSI standard...

For instance, STLPort enables this push_back() extension with a macro 
named _ENABLE_ANACHRONISMS, or something like that.

Ciao, Paolo.
