Storing a vector of pointers is not only less cumbersome than injecting
structures into the original objects, it's less expensive.
According to the Doom3 BFG technical note
a vector of indexes to a separate vector(s) of objects is significantly
faster than an intrusive list. The same would be true for a vector of
pointers (but less so).
This approach is also amenable to multiple containers sharing objects.
