A growable array would be indeed very useful in many situations. My
carray project  is another attempt to create such an object. It
grows (or shrink) arrays by adding (removing) chunks, so they are fast
beasts for performing these operations. I suppose this is more or less
like your approach.
I also thought about implementing ragged arrays in carray, like those
you are suggesting, but not sure when they will be ready for public
Perhaps it is a good time to join efforts and create a nice 'growable'
