I am a programmer for a Greater Boston municipality, and maintain a collection/reporting system written in Informix 4GL and C and running on Linux. Additional components written in Clojure and Python. In addition, I have system and database administration duties as well.

Am working on a major rewrite of water billing, which will be written in Perl both for CGI and utilities. Have completed an archiving and caching system to integrate with our Water Automated Meter Reading (AMR) project written almost entirely in Python with a Django web interface.

I maintain a web site implemented in Perl and Javascript, and perform various other IT-related duties.

Thanks. You answered the core of my question. A new vector is created. I am also avoiding vec and vector and working with the sequence operators as you suggest.
