Yeah… If the “optimized” route isn’t available, I don’t think trying to fake it is worth adding complexity to *Arrays*. If this were some heavy-weight object where it already has tons of overhead, then maybe, but not something as relatively basic and low-level as an Array.

The array will be the original array just "sorted" based on the predicate function. And the index is for where the second half starts. The public API would show 2 arrays somehow and gives the illusion that there are 2 arrays.
