I ended up writing my own implementation. It uses refcounting, custom
allocation, provides iterators and works a little bit faster than list.h

It even stores one list node directly in the list object, so most
operations don't require heap allocations at all.

Not really, it's not very fast and doesn't support
constructors/destructors. I'm going to try Google's hashtable - it is
BSD-licensed and seems to be good enough.

We can just include them into BJamC++ source tree.
