Luckily that is!  The C++ standard types are plain shit for most
use cases i can think about due to the completely useless
copy-creation + original-object-destruction that takes place upon
resizes etc.  Yes you can use <T *> instead -- and then loose ptr
management.  Maybe some kind of auto_ptr<> exists in the meantime.
Uff.  And the terrible bloat.  Granted that things may have
changed since "The C++ Programming Language, Third Edition".  But
i hope the compilers of the future will continue to support
"-fno-rtti -fno-exceptions" plus.
