I agree with Jordi, with a caveat to watch out for new and unstable
APIs if you plan on distributing your work to others. The
bernoulli_b2n function you call in your example was introduced very
recently in Boost 1.56.0 (August 2014) so it is unlikely to be widely
available in many distributions yet.
