Nosir, probably overkill for what we're considering. I'd located Continuous
Linq (CLINQ), but it seems to be somewhat stale or lacking support? Anyhow,
it's the same old argument, C++/CLI is a second class citizen in the .NET
realm, which is really what we want: to be able to use the Linq (or similar)
extensions on some .NET collections like Dictionary (best case), or do some
work through STL/NET map (acceptable, but far from "efficient" for the
questions I'd like to ask "ad hoc").
