        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
        that context.

        Having said all that, it's Jan that remains to be
        convinced.. :-)

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