In his keynote at Graz Miller at one point said - and quite impressed
me with it -, that for a certain problem related to data structures,
he already could think of a lot of *intelligent* solutions, but that
he hadn't yet found a *stupid* solution, and thus didn't implement any
solution yet.

I doubt that keeping track of the length qualifies as a "stupid"
solution, but it is stupider than the intelligent solution which would
be to wait for array resizing to finally work flawlessly. ;)
