You would be far better off using the new and improved indexing 
suite. It's still sitting in CVS on some experimental branch. It is a 
lot more efficient, already automatically interfaces with std::list 
and std::vector and also can be easily extended to handle any 
arbitrary kind of container.

TnFOX uses the new indexing suite. Saved me hours of extra work.
