Yes, I meant specifically for the QQueue, we'd want it to grow so we can
accommodate the data. The most obvious thing that comes to mind for the
regrowth is when you need an element and the begin iterator (i.e. pointer)
is end iterator + 1. It does waste one element, but on the other hand
allows to easily distinguish between an empty buffer and a full one.

Makes sense to me.
