I think I understand the concept of a template, the declaration of a 
class that you never actually have to create, right?

But I am hazy on the difference between sructs and classes, and can't

Classes are always reference types allocated on the heap, used for polymorphic types. Supports inheritance. Structs are, by default, value types and does not support inheritance. -- /Jacob Carlborg
