Discussion:

Due to an incompletely implemented change in Kona, some of the size_type deduction guides say something like:

A size_type parameter type in an unordered_set deduction guide refers to the size_type member type of the primary unordered_set template

while others say

A size_type parameter type in an unordered_map deduction guide refers to the size_type member type of the type deduced by the deduction guide.

Clearly they should both be the same. My recollection is that the intent of the committee was to change them all to be the latter. Note, however, that this issue may be mooted if the suggestions in the upcoming P0433R3 paper are adopted as a DR in Toronto.
