In case you didn't know, I manage the documentation. If you look in
the archives you'll find that I'm going to work on a longer term
solution. I've been emailled the necessary doxygen files of list, but
it'll take me a little while to get them working and in place.

This documentation isn't part of the documentation build.

Poor performance if more than about 2 millions elements are in an
unordered container. It isn't a show stopper but the change isn't at
all disruptive and it's certainly correct. It won't affect any other
libraries. I certainly wouldn't change hash at this point.
