I've been looking into making my indexing suite co-exist with the 
original suite by Joel de Guzman. I think the easiest way is to move my 
headers into a different directory called 
boost/python/suite/indexing_v2. This would mean anybody already using 
the "new" suite would have to change their #include directives, e.g.

#include <boost/python/suite/indexing/container_suite.hpp>
#include <boost/python/suite/indexing/vector.hpp>


#include <boost/python/suite/indexing_v2/container_suite.hpp>
#include <boost/python/suite/indexing_v2/vector.hpp>

Does anyone have a strong opinion about this?
