I strongly support this array library.

It is of course important that it meshes well with both
the simple array and matrix handling (the omens are good),
and I suspect we must expect some changes to accomodate this.

The 'abstraction cost' can't be too high
(we can stand a modest slowdown compared to F******N,
but not too much! )
Data presented so far look acceptable,
though it would be even nicer to find some examples of speedup!

I have not tried use it in anger yet,
and examples of this will be most interesting.

Yet more annotated examples will speed its adoption
by the very many novice potential users. Book?


PS We also still need a good set of mathematical functions
to go with these components. Does anyone have inside
info on what/how NIST are doing in this area? outlined proposals.
