Appending to an `@` vector would require copying the entire vector, just 
as with arrays in Java. (We should still probably support `push` on it 
with this performance caveat, but that's the reason why we don't right now.)

If you want to append to a vector, you probably want the `DVec` type, or 
a ~vector.
