No, he means "how do you take a reference to a character held in a packed
string?". Answer: you can't (I think there were similar problems with the
standard specialisation of std::vector<bool>).
Of course, you are not allowed to have charT be a reference to something,
as references do not have the correct copy semantics to be stored in an std
container (or pseudo-container such as string).
