This object stores ptrs to whatever you want in a flat array.
You put ptrs in the array, and take them off by referencing the
array position with a positive integer. The indexing is 0-based.
If the array isn't long enough to accomodate the item
at the given index, the array will attempt to expand to the size
required to fit the item at the given index and fill the
in-between spaces with null pointers.
The internal capacity of the array does NOT shrink once it's expanded.
