Means that every dynamic vector ("non-copy") constructor will need at
least one size argument, and every dynamic matrix ("non-copy")
constructor will need at least two. It rules out
default-constructibility, which is something I'm not yet prepared to
do. Maybe as the use-cases and design become more evolved, I'll
change my mind.
