I agree on the name issue...calling it a buffer is also a misnomer as it
would imply POD storage...

Having a:
 - resizable fixed-capacity 'vector' (basically a boost::array with an end
 - resizable fixed-preallocated-capacitiy+to-heap-expandable vector (IOW
AutoBuffer/StackVector, can be implemented in terms of the fixed-capacity
'vector' plus the capacity and 'actual storage' pointers)
 - fixed size/non-resizable dynamically stack allocated 'vector'
 - fixed size/non-resizable dynamically heap allocated 'vector'

would, with std::array and std::vector, probably cover all areas....
