glib 1.4 : skip list


I know it could be too late ...

I would like to have skip list implementation on glib 1.4 .

At this time, I don't known what the plan for glib 1.4, but if I've
some time (at late september - begin of october) I can work on that,
but i need support from a glib developer, now I'm too busy.

I need Skip List for a university project, and probably I'll provide
test too.

>From Communication of the ACM (June 1990 Volume 33 Number 6):

"Skip List: a Probabilistic Alternetive to Balanced Tree"

abstract: Skip lists are data structures that use probabilistic
	  balancing rather than strictly enforced balancing. As a
	  reusult, the algorithms for insertion and deletion in skip
	  lists are much simpler and significantly faster than
	  equivalent algorithms for balanced trees.

Actually, it's really simpler to implement (one day hack)
Also, it could be implemented simple procedures for previous and next
element (of a given one): let try to make a previous and next with
btree ...

I'll don't take offence if someone stole me this job ;)


P.S. : I've just installed a new mail server, and actually i'm busy
