I chose the name grid because in my mind, Matrix
implies a NUMERICAL grid, which my current
implementation would not have to be restricted to.

This decision was made to prevent improper operations
at compile time such assignment of a grid with
different dimensions to another (clearly a bad thing).

I guess I missed out on the experiences of Pascal. :)
Could you give me an example of how this would be too restrictive?
