#' @title A Bitset Class
#' @description This is a data structure that compactly stores the presence of 
#' integers in some finite set (\code{max_size}), and can 
#' efficiently perform set operations (union, intersection, complement, symmetric
#' difference, set difference). 
#' WARNING: All operations are in-place so please use \code{$copy}
#' if you would like to perform an operation without destroying your current bitset.

#' "bitwise and" intersection, and will have the same behavior as providing
#' an equivalent vector of integer indices.

#' @param other the values to keep (may be a vector of intergers or another \code{\link{Bitset}})
