The basic idea here, is instead of trying to feed SWIG all the
horribly templated STL code, to give it a neatened version.

These %defines cover some of the more common methods
so the class declarations become just a set of %defines

*/

/* #define for basic container features
note: I allow front(), back() & pop_back() to throw execptions
upon empty containers, rather than coredump
(as we have'nt defined the methods, we can use %extend to add with
new features)
