=head1 NAME
SkewHeap - A fast and flexible heap structure
=head1 SYNOPSIS
use SkewHeap;
my $heap = skewheap{ $a <=> $b };
$heap->put(42);
$heap->put(35);
$heap->put(200, 62);
$heap->top; # 35
$heap->size; # 4
$heap->take; # 35
$heap->take; # 42
$heap->take; # 62
$heap->take; # 200
my $merged_heap = $heap->merge($other_skewheap);
=head1 DESCRIPTION
A skew heap is a memory efficient, self-adjusting heap (or priority queue) with
an amortized performance of O(log n) (or better). C is implemented in
C/C.
The key feature of a skew heap is the ability to quickly and efficiently merge
two heaps together.
=head1 METHODS
=head2 skewheap
Creates a new C which will be sorted in ascending order using the
comparison subroutine passed in. This sub has the same semantics as Perl's
C, returning -1 if C<$a E $b>, 1 if C<$a E $b>, or 0 if
C<$a == $b>.
=head2 size
Returns the number of elements in the heap.
=head2 top
Returns the next element which would be returned by L without removing
it from the heap.
=head2 put
Inserts one or more new elements into the heap.
=head2 take
Removes and returns the next element from the heap.
=head2 merge
Non-destructively merges two heaps into a new heap. Returns the new heap.
