From the requirements in the proposed solution, you can deduce that
the elements would be stored "like an array", for a given packing.
I don't think that C++ addresses how to deal with varying packing schemes
within the same program or translation unit. That is left to how the
implementation wants to implement its pragmas and compiler switches.
I would expect that implementations will apply the current packing that
is in place when the vector is defined.
Okay, I'll give it a look tonight (it being Friday, I can spare a little
time before beginning the weekend work week <g>). Thanks.
