I did not claim otherwise. So, since auto_array has no knowledge of its
actual size, it should use operator[](ptrdiff_t) as the remainder of the XX_array
class templates (scoped_array, shared_array,...), if we follow your argumentation.

That current inconsistency among the XX_array smartpointer classes was what
I was reasoning about.
