It isn't off topic, I guess :)

Just for the case index == -1 or in general?

So that, in general,
b[i] with i<0 would give: b[sz - ((-i) % sz)] where sz = b.size()?
[Note that this gives undefined behavior when the absolute value of i
is a multiple of sz] Is there a motivating case for this? My fear is
that it slows down operator.

Could you please point me to a post that describes the semantics? I'm
not following the circular_buffer review, unfortunately.
