It could definitely use some improvement. In particular:

* It still uses the deprecated operator overload methods, rather than 
opBinary(Right) and opUnary.
* It's not quite const/immutable-friendly.
* It forces the GC on you. Probably not easy to solve until Andrei comes 
up with an allocators design.
* Needs more pure and nothrow.
* Needs more @safe/@trusted.
* The init() methods are very unintuitive at first glance.
* Should probably deprecate the reverse and sort properties.

... if you want to have a poke at it. ;)
