I understand and concur: ravelling a matrix always brings surprises. On a side
note, .compressed() isn't the method recommended to get rid of missing values
in a 2D array: there are the compress_rows and compress_cols functions for
that. In any case, I doubt that regular matrix users combine their matrices
with missing data...
