Yes.  But if I wanted to link in Extlib, I would just use the dynamic arrays
that it offers.

I'd rather minimize the number of dependencies, and so far I haven't needed
anything from Extlib other than dynamic arrays and a few convenience functions
that are easily recreated.

I think I'll just use options, the heap code isn't that long.
