People are used to the standard containers, so I think it's important to
provide that same interface.
Feel free to extend it however, or even to differ when there is peculiar
reason to.

 From my personal experience, the find function of sets is fairly
limited for certain semi-intrusive scenarios.
I seem to recall boost.intrusive allows for a find with any key type,
maybe that could be added to your containers too.
