So very similar. I just 'allocate' from a vector instead of the heap. Which
keeps everything together in memory.
ie: I see the standard is now going to have a definition of contiguous:
            &v[n] == &v[0] + n for all 0 <= n < v.size()

To me that is "ordered contiguity". I usually find all I really need is
"unordered contiguity":
        for all 0 <= n < v.size()
         there exists an m with 0 <= m <= v.size() such that
          &v[n] == &v[0] + m
What should that be called? 'locality' ?
