I once added a float-vector type when I was processing hundreds of
vectors each with a thousand values. The standard vectors filled with
float objects took up so much memory that the whole system sort of
collapsed. It was very minimal, I supported indexing into the vector
and converting to/from a normal vector -- that was all. It didn't
support any notation for textual representations, or any other nice

It was enough of an improvement to make the application run, though.
