This module offers an imperative implementation for the union find algorithm
based on linked pointer and collapsing rules.
A support is given for hooking values to keys.

(** {6 Union Find with key/value } *)
the type of an element. an element can be seen as a set, or an equivalence class,
represented by a elt of type 'a.
<!> values of type [('a, 'b) t] are mutable.
performing an [union] or [replace] lead to change the returned key/values of a elt.
type ('a, 'b) t
(** build a new set *)
val make : 'a -> 'b -> ('a, 'b) t
(** merging 2 elts.
<!> The key/value resulting in the merged elt is in unspecified.
@see 'replace' if you need to specify what key/value should be keeped *)
val union : ('a, 'b) t -> ('a, 'b) t -> unit
this is like an [union] but assure that the [key,value] of the [keeped] element
are keeped. Essentially, this function is there because in any other implementation,
the behavior of the function [union] may be unspecified.
val replace : replaced:('a, 'b) t -> keeped:('a, 'b) t -> unit
(** find pointed key/value by an elt
@see 'key' for getting only the key
@see 'value' for getting only the value *)
val find : ('a, 'b) t -> 'a * 'b
(** like [key t] is like [fst (find t)] but slighty optimized
@see 'find' for getting key * value *)
val key : ('a, 'b) t -> 'a
(** like [value t] is like [snd (find t)] but slighty optimized
@see 'find' for getting key * value *)
val value : ('a, 'b) t -> 'b
(** changing the hooked by this class of key *)
val changeval : ('a, 'b) t -> 'b -> unit
