OK, I now see what that is. Please do not use STL containers for the moment.
One day, we may see whether we should move to STL containers, but not now.
In fact, I don't see which STL containers should be useful now anyway;
we have arrays, lists and hashtables. We will not need much else.

I also would like you to avoid using too many new templated classes
in your program, because this hugely increases the size of the executable.
So please use the existing classes, like tree, array<int>,
hashmap<string,tree> etc. whenever possible.

Please keep in touch with me about the main design structure,
which has to be kept both elegant and efficient.
