"Didn't". I haven't used MATLAB for much in years. Back in the day, that 
feature didn't exist. Or at least was poorly enough documented that i 
didn't think it existed. Matlab didn't used to only support 2-d arrays 
as well.

Anyway, the point was that a (n,) array and a (n,1) array and a (1,n) 
array are all different, and that difference should be preserved.

I'm still confused as to what behavior Sasha wants that doesn't exist.
