Planned to use it as a key in a multi index container that uses shared
memory allocators.. Or even as kind of property id for a tree like
recursive property value db. But I dropped that idea, and now I am
looking into something like boost::flyweight' (where ' stands for
the ability to store the map and values inside certain shared memory
segment) as a fast comparable identifier type for the property value
