That was exactly why I wrote

That is: in order to use the library as presented, you don't need to afford
exceptions, but you will need to basically duplicate the same check op+=
does, in user code; this may decrease performance, but will not allow a
buffer overflow in case you either forgot the check or got it wrong.
