This is not a worked example, but this is exactly what is needed to
make possible the "arrays of matrices" functions that were discussed
some time ago. For example, users frequently want to do something like
multiply an array of matrices by an array of matrices; that is not
currently feasible without a very large temporary array (or a loop).

But I think you were looking for examples of code using the interface,
to see whether it worked well.
