I checked out and the definitions I saw
seem to agree with you. That being the case, matrix is
the better name.

Thanks for the tip. Seems there are several in the
"vault" but not accepted yet. The ones I saw that seem
to be related are, multi_array, and
numeric/mtl3.tar.gz. Did I miss any? Any chance of a
consolidation effort amongst these?

I see the trade off, and now that I think about it I
agree that deciding the size at compile time is too
limiting. Fortunately, putting the COLS and ROWS as
constructor parameters instead is an easy change.
