in thread Bidirectional lookup algorithm? (Updated: further info.)

The current hash lookups are very fast -- possibly as fast as I could hope to get -- the problem I'm trying to address is the memory consumed by the duplication of keys & values.

As I said in the OP: "so the priority is the lookup speed -- preferably O(1) though O(logN) might be acceptable if the memory reduction was sufficient."
