As I've said, there are two problems with these:
1. bm::value_type is dependent on bm which is both Boost.Bimap and my
component implementation detail. I don't want to put that dependency
on the user's code.
2. left, right and info members are not self-explaining to users.
There is no left or right side of my component.

This might be better if bimap allowed to express relations between
opaque structure members, something like:

struct MyData
  std::string Wildcard;
  unsigned int ID;
  std::string Rule;
  int Whatever;

typedef bimap<
  set_of< string, WildcardOrder >,
  unordered_set_of< unsigned int >,
    left_is< MyData, string, &MyData::Wildcard >,
    right_is< MyData, unsigned int, &MyData::ID >
> MyBimap_t;

But I guess, that leads us to Boost.MultiIndex.

Don't mention, it happens. :)
