I use the term "B-tree" as the generic name, as is the usual practice
in the literature.
The particular implementation is a B+ tree with leaf pages in a doubly
linked list. But I consider that an implementation detail subject to
change. Single link lists have concurrency advantages. My C
implementation used no linked lists at all to advantage.
A pure B-tree has advantages for sets, although perhaps not for multisets.
I'm not much interested in B*trees, for the usual reasons.
