Yes, I had proposed StaticVector.

Here is the repository:

Here is a link to the original discussion via google groups:

I would be interested in working with you to complete either my version or
yours. Did you have any thoughts or questions regarding my implementation?
There are a few items related to my implementation on the github ticket
