Ok. I wasn't sure whether I should create a new issue, but it makes sense since this one was closed 18 months ago. Thanks!

> The API for StrLookup is confused. The class has been partly genericised, but why?
> The Javadoc says the class is for looking up Strings which are indexed by Strings, and this agrees with the method lookup()
> Surely if the class is generic on <V>, the lookup() method should return V, not String?
> Does it make any sense for the class to return anything but a String? If not, then why is the class generic?
> If it does make sense, then lookup() should return V.
