There's one implicit assumption in this approach: user won't overwrite
(non-virtual) interface of container, e.g. no push_back() with logging
# of calls.
But this is not enforceable technically and having derived class makes it
tempting 'just to add some little functionality'.
The solution I have in mind is more complicated (for library writer)
but safer (IMHO) agains misuse.
