    I was relying on definitions like this:

    B*-tree

    (data structure)

    Definition: A B-tree in which nodes are kept 2/3 full by redistributing
    keys to fill two child nodes, then splitting them into three nodes.

    To tell the truth, I haven't read your code that closely, sorry, but I got
    the impression that you're doing rotations for balancing no? If not then
    have you really got a b*tree?
