You can do that with Boost.Intrusive, and that will indeed save you
one pointer per node as compared with the Boost.MultiIndex-based
solution. If you're resorting to manually combining a hash_map and
a slist<pointer> then you'd begaining nothing, as in the hash_map+
deque<pointer> case described in my previous post.
