The agreement was:

a) That x[0][0] should be equal to x[0,0] and
b) That x[0,:] should be equal to x[0] (as for ndarrays)

This breaks as little functionality as possible, at the cost of one
(instead of two) API changes.

We should now discuss the proposals on the table, choose a good one,
and implement all the API changes necessary for 1.2 or 2.  It's a pity
we have to change the API again, but the current situation is not
tenable.

Cheers
