 Description   

As discussed on clojure-dev at <http://groups.google.com/group/clojure-dev/browse_thread/thread/97137884bb33f8ee>, I would like to enhance (vector-of) so that it can create a populated vector. There are two ways to do this:

1. Like vector, take an arbitrary number of arguments used to populate the array.
2. Like vec, take a collection and use it to populate the array.

dsg said: I have attached a patch that implements the proposed enhancement. I am fairly certain it is not the absolutely highest performance implementation.

I have not taken a lot of time to thoroughly study the code, but I think there is probably a way to create the initial array and pass it as an argument to the constructor, which would avoid a lot of the cons calls.

Nonetheless, I think it is important enough to provide convenience of the interface. The implementation can always be changed later.

richhickey said: You can't have it both ways. vector-of should be like vector, I think.

I have updated my patch to reflect Rich's recommendation. vector-of now behaves similarly to vector.

Includes tests.

For the 1,2,3 cases it's better to create an array of that size and .aset am into it, please. & rest case could bootstrap with 3-arg call as well.

Thanks.

Updated patch to reflect Rich's suggestions.
