Yes: for consistency with row vector conversion,
and for indexing consistency.

Again, I understand what you have done, and it addresses
my core issue.  I do not "object" to it.  I just think there 
is a better way.  (Better = simpler and just as functional.)

I strongly support your proposal over no change.
I just do not think it is a better proposal.

But frankly I am not even sure of that:
I see some pedagogical advantages in your approach,
and I think Charles suggested that it may enable
some new functionality.  (But what is that?)

In sum:
if you put this in NumPy, I will happy.

Cheers,
Alan
