I really appreciated Jeff's note.  But I think this unit only stores
text strings and values--already better supported, syntactically, by
the psuedo-associative "trick" behavior of string lists:

MyHash := TStrubglist.Create;
MyHash['Alan'] := 'Mead';

I also have to admit being worried by some of the code... like the
lack of error checking (as noted by the author).
