Hey Argiris,

This looks like great work, one minor comment below:

Why should Entity's be FoldingSetNodes?  There are two reasons to use  
a folding set (instead of a DenseMap<pair<Entity*,void*>, Entity*>):

1. If you want to derive from Entity, so you may have heterogenous  
keys indexing the map.
2. If the key data is large.

I don't think either of these applies here, should Entity's be uniqued  
with a DenseMap instead of a FoldingSet?
