I think this is great! I verified that all the examples compile and run
okay with gcc 2.95.2 on Linux.

Just one question. Why did you make capacity() and max_size() be
static? If they're static, a generic algorithm that relies on calling
either one would not work with for both a std::vector and a
--Dan Nuffer

p.s. Here's the results of running the timing.cpp program (compiled with
g++ -O3):

allocating 2097152 short vectors of length 4
fixed_capacity_vector 0.89 sec
std::vector 3.17 sec
