Yes, I know. However, not fully using such instantiation, as is the case,
seems somewhat less wrong.

Another way to solve the problem is using an auxiliar class, vectorAction,
which is forward declared at the beginning. It's definition,

class vectorAction {
     vectorAction(std::vector<Action>& ref) : value(ref) {}
     std::vector<Action>& value;

is put as the last thing. All uses of vector<Action>& are then changed
for vectorAction. Does this work?
