Another problem is development time. With the list there are a lot of really neat commands, for example LMRPT, thanks to goferlist, listExt, lsort and what not. With vectors I presume I will have to create (or search) a lot of equivalents by myself as they are not available in libraries (even better optimized libraries).

Plus from your description one should be really careful in creating a vector and - you don't state it - but I feel the increment in speed would be noticeable only with many many many operations.

Wikis are great, Contribute :)
