Something defined with `cl-defstruct`.

But in your example, you want to use a vector instead.

I must admit I do not see which aspect of the change you think makes it

Replace `nth` with `aref` (and swap the args accordingly) and replace
(list ...) with (vector ...) and you've got a solution using vectors
instead of lists.
