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.
