Can you give an overview of which data structures we now have better
replacements for, and what is preventing them being replaced? 

Perhaps a good next step would be to break containers up into smaller
pieces, so that individual parts of the containers library can be
selectively replaced?

Once we have experience with what breaks, and what is faster, then we
can proceed to replace components?
