Good. It was possible to get an immediate feel for what the library could do
and how to use it. More detailed information was easy to find, and quite

container of (inner) containers to be accessed as if it were a single
container of the inner type. The library would make extending this adaptor to
support collections (inner and outer) that are not containers very stright
