//
// This file declares an interned string pool, which helps reduce the cost of
// strings by using the same storage for identical strings.
// 
// To intern a string:
// 
//   StringPool Pool;
//   PooledStringPtr Str = Pool.intern("wakka wakka");
// 
// To use the value of an interned string, use operator bool and operator*:
// 
//   if (Str)
//     cerr << "the string is" << *Str << "\n";
// 
// Pooled strings are immutable, but you can change a PooledStringPtr to point
// to another instance. So that interned strings can eventually be freed,
// strings in the string pool are reference-counted (automatically).
//
