Summary0000095: svset module descriptions don't match declarations.
In the svset module descriptions of predicates don't match their declarations.
Additional InformationFor example:

     % `svset.insert(X, Set0, Set)' is true iff `Set' is the union of
     % `Set0' and the set containing only `X'.
  :- pred svset.insert(T::in, set(T)::in, set(T)::out) is det.

The description says insert/3 is *true iff* however the predicate is deterministic. As a user I'm not sure if this will throw an exception if the key already exists or just ignore it.

It may be best to adjust the declaration to match the description.
