Can you do that with just an allocator? How would swap work?

Now, if you have static_vector (or equivalent), you could build a vector
replacement out of that and std::vector.

(I've been toying with this too, but it is not yet ready for prime time.)

One other feature I'd like to see is a way to specify zero-initialized vs.
uninitialized for POD-types.
