Re: Storage Efficiency of Vectors

I agree.  I missed the justification for including association
vectors.  Why would anyone ever use such a data structure?  If
you really want it, use a vector of pairs, but even then it should
be rare enough that there is no need to standardize such
trivial and rarely-used functions.
