The first-mentioned AVL library does provide at least one feature
that GNU libavl does not: it can efficiently locate an item in
the tree based on the number of elements it is from the beginning
of the list.

A similar feature is planned for some tree variants in GNU libavl
2.0, but it may be some months, or even longer, before a final
release of libavl 2.0 is made.

Yes, the author is in fact me.

(And if you're talking about `better documentation', well there's
no better-documented program out there than libavl 2.0 alpha,
being a literate program and all.)
