hi all,

just out of curiosity, I would like to ask why you decided to implement 
your own containter structures, like Vector or HashTable/Map/Set ...

What was your driving force?
In addition why did you choose to make the string internal 
representation (UChar) 2 bytes wide? Isn't it that most web-sites are 
encoded in UTF-8/Latin1?

thanks for your insights
