More or less.
It also adds some purely data structure elements that vector<char> does
not provide, such as all things related to substrings (extracting a
given substring, replacing a substring with a substring of a different
length, appending a substring etc.)

One can implement a rope data structure with the interface of
basic_string, but not really with that of vector.
