This is standard for all STL containers. The at() form does bounds checking,
and the operator[] form is fast and does not. While I don't object in
principle to a "debug mode" flag which makes operator[] the same as at(), I
am happy with things as they stand. I would object if the "release" mode
differed from the established practice in the standard library.
