Probably not, for two reasons:
1) As I wrote this for work, it's their code, and there's no compelling
reason for them to share it.
2) As we can't use it for the intended use (for the reason I explained),
I haven't finished it off: it's more of a POC than production-ready

So, don't get your hopes up, but I'll see what I can do. Even so,
starting with the pointer-stuffing class and my container class's unit
tests, it took maybe a day or two to get it to the testable state it's
in now, so starting an open-source implementation from scratch wouldn't
be much duplicated work.
