my main reason for wanting this in the first place was to get rid of the
(to me) crazy idea that the comparison operators work in lexicographic
"mode" rather than in what any mathematician would call "set" mode.

how about something straightforward, simple, small, and a concept that
everyone can get a handle on: bag<>

lest anyone get upset that we can have only ONE of each kind of element,
multi_bag<> can exist and is left as an exercise for the student.
