The current docs are a bit weak in this matter. But
ptr_map<Key,T>::value_type is T*
ptr_vector<T>::value_type is T*
The fact that you cannot use the normal iterator to access the key in
an algorithm is of course bad when you need it, but I still feel that
the design in general is OK given the domain.
There is no nested typedef right now that would give you the value-type
of the void-ptr-map used internally, though you are guaranteed that it
I could thus add another pair of typedefs for this case. How does
sound? Is it worth the effort?
