 * Class: StaticPersistence
 * The class that encapsulates order and pairing information as well as 
 * implements methods to compute and maintain the pairing. Its most 
 * significant method is <pair_simplices()>.
 * Template parameters:
 *   Data_ -                auxilliary contents to store with each OrderElement
 *   OrderDescriptor_ -     class describing how the order is stored; it defaults to <VectorOrderDescriptor> 
 *                          which serves as a prototypical class
