Hello,

I agree for two reasons.

The name "map" is not suitable.  In computer science, "map" stands for
an abstract data structure that preserves correspondence between a key
and a value.  See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Associative_array
Hash, binary tree, and "Ara Howard's Map" are all instances of map.
So the name is too general for the library.

In addition, standard libraries are basically shrinking.  It is hard
to add a new library except a good reason.
