    Google for "ternary search trees". It's a very interesting
    technique which provides a combination of trie and binary tree.

    I must confess that I have very little notion of what [s. 4 of the British
    Trade Marks Act, 1938] is intended to convey, and particularly the sentence
    of 253 words, as I make them, which constitutes sub-section 1.  I doubt if
    the entire statute book could be successfully searched for a sentence of
    equal length which is of more fuliginous obscurity. --MacKinnon LJ, 1940
