Of course I want, it is not secret, but usually people can express a
(lack of) interest in something without knowing "how it works," like:
"No, we don't need a time machine that brings you to the same time you
are when you use it." By telling this, you save some time to the
self-deluded inventor, and to yourselves.

Anyway, I finally managed to find some time to publish the source code
with a brief explanation:

Feel free to challenge whatever part of it. ;) Please don't remark (at
least not now) the absence of proper iterators or exception safety, and
any other implementation detail, because at the moment I still have to
figure out whether this data structure is a reasonable idea in the first
place. There's time for polishing it. Of course, if a bug is affecting
the benchmarks, please tell me: I am sorry, it is not done on purpose.
