in reply to Shift, Pop, Unshift and Push with Impunity!

Hi. I thought this was a great node, and have recommended its reading and repeated its contents in a number of situations.

One of them was in correspondence with Dominus where he suggested quite strongly that some of what it said is incorrect (specifically the last paragraph). As my C skills arent sufficient to determine the facts on my own im a little curious as to where things stand right now.

Is the information in this node correct? If not, is this due to an implementation change?

I would really like to know the current status of the validity of the information in this node.

I'm somewhat doubtful as to how long this node would have lasted if it was totally incorrect without someone saying so, but on the other hand Dominus has a reputation for knowing his stuff so im in a bit of a quandry as to what to think.

Please advise!
