I totally agree. I never want to insist that this is my invention.
As many of you have responded already, this tiny trick could have a
great impact on performance (and possiblely space) in many
applications. It's very useful and also quite generic. I suspect
everybody (including myself) has written her/his `incomplete' class of
this kind once (or more), and is using it. This is nothing but
exhausting. I believe it's worth being in Boost and it should be.
This is the reason why I tried to write a `complete' version as far as
possible, and posted it to Boost.
I have changed the class name to `fixed_capacity_vector' and made
small modifications to it. You can find the updated version at
