It's a type alias, which in this simple form is just like a typedef.  Type aliases can also have template parameters.  The iterator type used for iterating over a ThreadsListHandle today happens to be the same type as used for iterating over the underlying ThreadsList.  There's no particular reason to wire that information in to clients.
