It appears to me that the discussion is mostly concentrated on
strided subarrays and strided slices. But I would prefer
to have minimal distinction between this type of functionality
and 'indirect addressing' where the indexes in all dimensions
can be totally irregular (cfr. cartesian-product indirection
of Blitz)
This could be supported by means of a begin and end iterator
for every dimension : e.g.
A[begin_row_index, end_row_index][begin_col_index, end_col_index]
