I have not yet needed a priority queue for any application, so I have
no specific technical opinion in this particular proposal.
I would suggest that if you continue to receive relative silence on
the topic, then it may not be a good candidate for the standard
"containers" library, simply because a demand for it has not yet been
demonstrated. (You can easily release it as a separate package anyway.)
This, I hope, will be sufficient of a cue for anyone who _does_ care
about PQs to speak up now!
