desirable. In contrast, there *is* universal agreement that
x==x[0,0] is desirable. Or so I've understood the
As you know, my view is that nonscalar indexing should
return submatrices, while scalar indexing should return
1d arrays. Thus I do not see x != x[0,:] as breakage:
it is desirable. Indeed, without it, we will have an
untenable situation, under all the different proposals.
