A growable array would be indeed very useful in many situations.  My 
carray project [1] 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' 
array package?
