Alle had a use case for runtime dimensionality. In private emails
between now and then, I did mention (on April 12) this thread and I
think he's decided to abandon use of variants. I did propose
something that did have dynamic dimensionality; however, he may want
to consider this index_list instead since it's much further developed.
