/** FastVector is a sequence class with an interface similar to that
    of the STL vector, with several nice properties and one nasty one:
  * It allows fast random access, like the STL vector -- although
    access is not quite as fast, as a little arithmetic is required.
  * Appending (push_back) and prepending (push_front) are both fast.
  * The worst-case behaviour is repeated random inserts and deletes
    of single items, and performance in this case is still as good
    as vector where builtin types are stored, and much better where
    deep-copied objects are stored.
  * Performance is not as good as vector for very short sequences
    (where vector's simple implementation excels), but it's not bad.
  * You can subclass the iterator so as to request callbacks when
    elements are inserted or deleted (the RobustIteratorVector at
    bottom is a simple example).  This obviously dents performance;
    you get a proportionality to the number of iterators that have
    registered this request.  However, this facility imposes
    virtually no overhead on the non-subclassed, default version.
  * BUT: To achieve all this, it cheats.  Objects are moved around
    from place to place in the vector using memmove(), rather than
    deep copy.  If you store objects with internal pointers, they
    will break badly.  Storing simple structures will be no problem,
    and if you just store pointers to objects you'll be fine.
  * One other difference from the STL vector: It uses placement new
    with the copy constructor to construct objects, rather than
    the default constructor and assignment.  Thus the copy
    constructor must work on the stored objects, though assignment
    doesn't have to.
