To implement an STL-compatible "relational table" container, that is
type-safe and allows fields of any built-in or user-defined type.

Naturally, once there is a container, operations are required. Hence, the
relational algebra.

We think such library could become a good alternative to, for example, MS
Access, for light-weight applications. Also, the possibility to perform
relational operations on objects might bring new and unexpected
possibilities. As always with relational databases, the library is
particulary convenient and efficient when multiple views of the same data
are required and need to be kept in-sync.
