  I have made a simple testing, and found the performance of HASH is more 
faster than Splay Tree, even if there is only one node in the Splay Tree
and HASH.

  I check the source of Splay Tree, comparing the root node in Splay Tree 
need several function calls, it cost more CPU cycle than calculate the 
hash key.

  Using HASH maybe cause the DoS attack by sending special packets, but 
can we using the HASH function based some random number?
