That's funny. I thought of unordered_<containers> as well when I read that,
but I had a positive reaction to that thought sequence since the semantics
of the word 'unordered' are congruent in both contexts. However, I do think
that the 'find_' prefix changes the scope to elements of the container
rather than the container as a whole (as in unordered_<container>).
I actually really like find_disorder(), because it makes it sound more
righteous, but find_unordered() is less likely to offend more delicate
