yes and no.  It's not bounded in terms of limiting the number of 
mappings that it contains.  It just does not scale very well over a 
certain number of elements.  The "static" makes more sense when placed 
into context of a "dynamic" bucket map.  I can understand the potential 
for confusion though.    What do others think?
