I agree that [] is more natural in C++.

I was thinking that we'd make the expression template stuff an optional
add-on. That way we keep the portability for the core array stuff. In
terms of release schedule, I was thinking the core array stuff would be
released first without the ET, and then a later release would include the
ET stuff.
