I suppose my resistance to that is partly aestetic.
Having a container that is array-like with circularity
is a tidier concept. Since the uses that I have for
it do not requiring resizing, it seems extraneous in

Does a circular_deque sound like the right solution
to your particular application, rather than a
vector-like resizing contiguous circular buffer?
