When I think about it, it would also be nice if you coudl control
when you use something similar to boost::ptr_vector<T> for holding the
For big objects, this would be faster.

Also, for a map it can really mean al lot performance wise if you donøt have
to construct
before its needed. Something like

value& fast_map::lazy_insert(
something_conparable_and-convertible_to_the_key_type& r );

think of word-counting with strings:

fast_map<string,unsigned> m;
sub_range<string> s = ...;
