Indeed, nits like the above convince me that taking an ordered vector
and calling it a set was probably a good-intentions-driven mistake. That
set-oriented mindset then influenced the set-like api and behavior too
much (IMO) that in turn affected the performance... the original goal of
the flat_set.
