[Information] Map with multiple keys

Did you ever need a map (kind of structure) with multiple keys to value? I needed this kind of implementation. I googled for that and came across Apache Commons and they have a class MultiKeyMap.

I thought it might be helpful so put it here and also so that it gets archived on internet.

That looks pretty useful, better than some of the nested HashMap/ArrayList/HashMap structures I've run across before
I agree. Here's the link:
