Subject: Announce: HashSet

It is my pleasure to announce the release of HashSet,
a hashed set library for Objective Caml.

Buckets are ordered and the first element of a bucket is kept in a
separate array, with occupation controlled by a bitvector.

Version 0.1 is available at
It is released under LGPL.

In tests on my desktop I find that, compared to Hashset in
HashSet is usually 2x faster or more
for large sets (n >= 100000) of integers and floats,
and roughly equivalent in other cases.

In the examples directory there is the example with HashSet,
which for the case of 100-nth neighbours for amorphous silicon
is on my desktop more than 2x faster than the one in
which uses Set.
There are a few other examples which I found in the ocaml mailing lists.
