Arry leaders & structs

    I am using defstruct to define a 1-d bit array with a leader.  I ran into
    some problems because the first position of the leader is interpreted as
    the fill-pointer by some primitives such as bit-vector-cardinality.  I
    changed the defstruct so that the fill-pointer position is unused (by me)
    and always contains a nil.  Will this force all the bit primitivies to
    use the actual array length?  If not, must I stuff the fill-pointer
    position with the array length?

I believe this will do what you want.
