I didn't mean to refer to "slicing" in the multi_array documentation.
 I am in the process of rewriting it. If I recall correctly, the
Blitz documentation separates the ideas of "subarray" and "slicing"
(I'll have to check). I meant to combine the concepts under the idea
of "views." What Blitz refers to as a slice, I meant to be a
considered a view with degenerate dimensions. I would like the
terminology to be at least self-consistent.
