Well, a bug is a bug and the fix needs to go into stable. So we will
need a patch that does not depend on your changes.

I don't have a problem with adding a pointer so clones can point to the
parent's vector. But embedding the vector into the bip was a feature.
If you check the git log you'll see that originally I did use separate
vector allocations.
