Could it also be used with or merged with multi_array. IOW,
a multi_array, m, can be thought of as a tree, where tree depth is
m.num_dimensions() and each level of the tree has the same depth
and number of children.

This is not all that far fetched, as I think it could be used to
calculate the follow sets of a Spirit Grammar since the follow set
is defined in matrix terms (with transpose and closure operations)
by Thomas W. Christopher
[ p. 26 of ]
Since the grammar would be stored as some sort of tree, which
can be thought of as a sparse matrix or sorts, then
calculating the transpose and closure would be matrix (or
multi-array) operations.
