I second that. I've been using boost::array<> with a sentinel value to
indicate end, which is both ugly and requires length to be 1 longer than
boost::container::static_vector seems like a good addition, maybe it can be
reviewed for inclusion in upcoming Boost.Container.

FWIW, I think that static_vector should throw std::bad_alloc if it runs out
of space, to mimic an out of memory situation for ordinary containers.
(Consider an algorithm that needs temporary storage, and user passes a
static_vector as tmp storage policy. The algorithm might be designed to
handle std::bad_alloc in some way).
