I don't get how we know if we have a push_back or push_front. So I think
we should use

   free_space query_for_middle_insertion(std::size_t pos,std::size_t n);
   free_space query_for_back_insertion(std::size_t pos,std::size_t n);
   free_space query_for_front_insertion(std::size_t pos,std::size_t n);

so we have clear control over inserts/push to either end.

kind regards
