   One pattern that seems to come up pretty often is the relationship table.
Suppose I have 2 classes, Employee and Skill. An Employee can have any
number of Skills, and a Skill can be possessed by any number of Employees.
But an Employee can have a given Skill only once. The user would need to be
able to search for which Skills a given Employee has, and which Employees
have a given Skill. What is the best way of using a multi_index_container
to model this use case?

   Suppose, in addition, that every Employee who has a Skill has a numerical
rating at that Skill. How would you do a multi_index_container in that
