This is in:

One thing, though. We should avoid using other parts of the library
(such as std:equal_to) when exercising these algorithms. There are
at least two reasons for this: First, the other parts of the library
might themselves be broken which could skew the test results of the
algorithms (and yield false negatives, or worse, false positives).
Second, with the function objects defined by the library we don't
have as much control over the testing environment as we would with
those written specifically for testing purposes.

So instead of the standard function objects we ought to roll our own,
such as we do in 25.for.each.cpp, and use them in the algorithms tests.
Once we've implemented a few of these critters we can move them to
