I'm pretty sure there's no one widely-used implementation, no. I'm
not familiar with Boost,
but I assume it's an open-source library of basic data structures.
Since Lisp has garbage collection, the main difficulty you would have
in C++ is taken care of
for you: specifically, you don't have to explicitly free (delete) list
items, so problems which involve
referring to already-freed memory never arise, which takes care of most
of the subtle bugs.
I would go ahead and write something short for you here, but it
wouldn't really help you
because it would just be something I came up with, not an
implementation other people
have looked at and agreed with the design of.
Are you aware of the mailing list small-cl-src? It's dedicated to
sharing bits of Lisp code
which are too small to be programs by themselves. If you do write an
would be the ideal place to post it if you want other people to start
using it, which would
result in there eventually being a community-vetted implementation.

In fact, it would probably be worth looking through the archived
messages of that list,
in case somebody already has one.
