In Matlab this (misfeature?) is generally used to compensate for the 
lack of broadbasting. So many Matlab programmers manually broadcast by 
fancy indexing with an array of (boolean) ones (it's less verbose than 
reshape). But with broadcasting for binary array operators (NumPy and 
Fortran 90), this is never needed.
