Hey Claes,

thank you for your comments on my proposal.

I thought about that, but decided against the specific ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException which would be thrown if we omit the explicit check. My reasoning behind that was that the API should not expose the fact that it's working with an array underneath. I have no strong feelings against your comment, though. I'd be fine with both solutions.

Anything I can do to help?
