Minor comment, and arguably subjective -- I find the signature for
checkVectorDimensions(int) a little odd for a public method (I'd make
it private).

look, it seems OK (findInsertionIndex in OpenIntToDoubleHashMap should always return a negative
value and newMapping should be always reset to false), but I'm not sure and this seems to
really be implementation dependent.

avoided by simply iterating on the instance by itself and setting the elements of an initially
empty vector, built with the advanced use constructor with both expected size and dimension.
