Right, but you also have to watch the iterator invalidation semantics much
more carefully. For instance, if you connect a new slot to a signal A from
within a slot called from signal B, there is no problem in the current
multimap implementation because iterators are stable. For a vector, you have
to queue the additions. In both cases you need to queue up deletions (that's
already done, of course).
But yes, it could be a policy <shudder>.
