For VertexList == vecS, yes. My advice regarding this would be: If you're
using vecS for vectors, don't remove vertices. If you have to remove
vertices, use listS and never call num_vertices,
For anything other than vecS, remove_vertex shouldn't invalidate descriptors
other than the one removed. I hope.
