Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but for some reason the multi-index
container starts to fail for some larger number of pairs (a few
hundred). The container doesn't/won't insert them, and to be honest, I
don't have a clue at this point why. If you're up for it you might want
to stress test the code you sent me with thousands of unique pairs and
redundant pairs.
