             <summary>
             <p><c>DictionarySet</c> is an abstract class that supports the creation of new <c>Set</c>
             types where the underlying data store is an <c>IDictionary</c> instance.</p> 
              
             <p>You can use any object that implements the <c>IDictionary</c> interface to hold set data.
             You can define your own, or you can use one of the objects provided in the Framework.   
             The type of <c>IDictionary</c> you choose will affect both the performance and the behavior
             of the <c>Set</c> using it. </p>
            
             <p>To make a <c>Set</c> typed based on your own <c>IDictionary</c>, simply derive a
             new class with a constructor that takes no parameters.  Some <c>Set</c> implmentations
             cannot be defined with a default constructor.  If this is the case for your class, 
             you will need to override <c>Clone()</c> as well.</p>
            
             <p>It is also standard practice that at least one of your constructors takes an <c>ICollection</c> or 
             an <c>ISet</c> as an argument.</p>

            Implements a <c>Set</c> based on a sorted tree.  This gives good performance for operations on very
            large data-sets, though not as good - asymptotically - as a <c>HashedSet</c>.  However, iteration
            occurs in order.  Elements that you put into this type of collection must implement <c>IComparable</c>,
            and they must actually be comparable.  You can't mix <c>string</c> and <c>int</c> values, for example.
