11.10 Vector

As mentioned above, each vector is malloc()ed individually, and all are threaded through the variable all_vectors. Vectors are marked strangely during garbage collection, by kludging the size field. Note that the struct Lisp_Vector is declared with its contents field being a stretchy array of one element. It is actually malloc()ed with the right size, however, and access to any element through the contents array works fine.
