Thanks for your email.

> You are looking for a "rope". Some have been proposed here but none reviewed. Original SGI STL has one.

The GNU extension has one too I found, but it looks like not action
there for years and very limited documentation. Moreover, a rope seems
a bit overkill for my application as my data stream only concatenates
new incoming byte buffers and is read-only. Also, I need to have
control over pointer-to-buffer ownerships by using smart pointers and
the GNU extension seems not to be templated. Well, I am going for my
own implementation...
