Trie implementation based on the "HAT-trie: A Cache-conscious Trie-based Data Structure for Strings." (Askitis Nikolas and Sinha Ranjan, 2007) paper. For now, only the pure HAT-trie has been implemented, the hybrid version may arrive later. Details regarding the HAT-trie data structure can be found here. The library provides an efficient and compact way to store a set or a map of strings by compressing the common prefixes. It also allows to search for keys that match a prefix. Note though that the default parameters of the structure are geared toward optimizing exact searches, if you do a lot of prefix searches you may want to reduce the burst threshold through the burst_threshold method.
