Functions are great; I'm a big fan of functions. That said, the group

IIRC the statement wasn't about "non-heap structures". It was about, "I need a heap which does something special and subclassing might not solve it. So, I run my own implementation using those functions".

On the other hand, I can fully understand the need for general-purpose oo-heap implementation. That why I put xheap on github/PyPI.


Best,
