vector<> v is not shared
shared_ptr< vector<> > spv has strange syntax ( *spv )[ 123 ] = blah;
shared_ptr< array< 44 > > spa has a fixed size and also strange syntax ( *spa )[ 123 ] = blah;
Now watch this:
int my_buffer_size = 1234;
auto buffer = boost::make_shared< unsigned char >( my_buffer_size );
buffer[ index ] = something;
int cap = buffer.capacity();
Doesn't that feel the most natural ?
