Kinda my point.  We already have all the hlist*() interface to deal
with such cases.  Having something which is evidently the trivial
hlist hashtable and advertises as such in the interface can be
helpful.  I think we need that more than we need anything fancy.

Heh, this is a debate about which one is less insignificant.  I can
see your point.  I'd really like to hear what others think on this.

Guys, do we want something which is evidently trivial hlist hashtable
which can use hlist_*() API directly or do we want something better
encapsulated?

Thanks.
