I strongly suggest to not name this new feature. All the attempts to make
it go away silently in 7.1 will get a blow in the face from this.

Regarding which: Make a default description/comment (DESCR macro) "for
internal use only" and don't mention it in the documention (see last
paragraph), that should suffice. If people disregard that, they probably
use int2vector for their production applications as well.
