And as I explained back: this is a good thing (TM).
There is no need for these to be the same.
I also gave you the simple rule for users to rely on:
nonscalar indexes are used for submatrix extraction.
It is not a breakdown.
It is the proposal:
restore the proper behavior of x,
but keep submatrix extraction **exactly**
the same as it is now (for nonscalar indexes).
What it gains is that x[i][j] == x[i,j].
