I vote to accept this library. The documentation is very nice.

One thing puzzled me though:

"The containers hash or predicate function can throw exceptions from erase"

Under what cicumstances can/should/would I construct a ahsh or predicate
that throws? I mean, the hash computes an integer, and comparisons reads
data to determine its answer.

This migth be what the standard requires, but it certainly seems
non-intuitive. Why not just require that neither hash nor predicates can
