implementation. I think it would behoove the C++ community to try and
use each of these versions to the extent practical, instead of just
SGI's. By doing so we may discover things that are good and bad about
each version, thus ultimately contributing to a better std::hash_map. If
only the SGI hash_map is exercised, then we have greatly decreased our
