1) AssocList is a list of pairs (key , value), with keys compared by
_≈_. But I think that there is also needed the condition of that the
keys do not repeat. This makes it a certain record. And then,
insert k v assocList
needs to include a proof for the condition.
Then, I am going to use this to define Multiset.
Generally, it is probably natural to have such AssocList in Standard
library -- because AVL.Tree is only for syntactic equality.
2) Suppose that AVL.Tree is generalized to Key being of
StrictTotalOrder _≈_ _<_ (rather than _≡_).
This requires certain difficult proofs.
And suppose that these proofs are `postulate'-d.
Probably, it will be useful even in this version
(?)
For example, one can define Multiset as Tree A ℕ, and it is also
O(n*(log n)) is lookup/insert.
