how are implemented lists? What is the algorithm behind them? Especially
for key* functions? I am asking myself if i need to implement a skip-list
or if the lists module would fit my needs. I indeed need a fast and
concurrent data structure that allows me to retrieve the items in order and
do pop/tail, while still being abble to remove them by key. Any idea?
