Well I'd like to see a variable length array.

In this the choice of data structure may be a performance 
or convenience issue, but having made that choice
an implementation without magic is impossible.

The requirement is to construct such an array starting
at length zero and append elements as required
which  can't be done in a GC safe way without magic 
and knowledge of implementation details.
