The fixed_* templates are almost drop-in replacements for the
similarly-named containers in the standard library. The fixed_* versions are
intended to be used when a fixed capacity limit is acceptable, and greater
speed or memory efficiency is needed. Beman's timings indicated a speedup of
as much as 8x in some cases, and the memory savings are significant too.

This is the rationale for providing them.
