Merges another priority queue into this one, adding all of its (element, priority) pairs. This is a destructive operation with no guarantees to the state of the other priority queue upon completion. Additionally, some implementations of this method may assume that
thisdo not share any elements, and the priority queue may become unstable if they do. The priority order of both priority queues must be the same (e.g., both minheaps or both maxheaps).
other- The priority queue that you want to merge into
