It's OK Arnd; I've recently seen you (or someone else withe the same 
name) acknowledged in a PhD I've been reading so I suspect you're a nice 
guy :-)

And, thanks Alan.
I knew about mgrid but not ogrid.
One small way in which that example might be better than using ogrid is 
that you could avoid creating the index arrays and lazily generate the 
indices. However, ogrid is better than mgrid in this respect.
