Yes I found it.
I am only thinking now if HashTable and HashMap are the same thing. If they 
are and TFPStringHashTable is as fast as JCL's StringHashMap, then it doesn't 
make sense to add StringHashMap to CCR.

I extracted it from JCL already a long time ago and it has been useful. No 
wasted effort there.
But now I made a demo program for it. It could be used to demonstrate another 
similar class, too.

What about the generic containers? I guess it has not been planned yet.
