I need to test for occurence every such combination in some real-world
examples. Many many will be missing, and those I have to keep.
I've no clue what size will be the drop, so I rather expect full size.
So, the generated, theoretical lexicon I could generate on the fly,
but the results I have to keep.

Even if I give up on this, can I write Sets onto a disk while keeping
their nice, built-in methods?
