- I implement a dictionary, which is an object that is indexed by
unique objects (typcially instances of Symbol), and associates another
object with that index. I use the equality operator = to determine
equality of indices.
In almost all places where you would use a plain Dictionary, a
LookupTable would be more efficient; see LookupTable's comment before
you use it. I do have a couple of special features that are useful in
certain special cases.
