I think what's causing this confusion is the lack of a concise
abstract or statement of the problem being addressed by this library.
I mean a statement that "nails it" for people, so they instantly
understand the purpose of the library.

The documentation at begins with a
description of a data structure, but clearly, that's not what this
library is about.

IMO, Marcin, coming up with such a statement should be a high priority
for you.
