Huh?  "Access to change the length of the list"?  We are talking about a
list, don't we?  Not an array?  The list is whatever length you need at
any particular point of time.  If it is a list of alterations, quite
possibly length 0.

Huh?  What point is there in declaring a certain list length in advance
rather than just using what is needed?
