As the patch I sent earlier shows, we can gain that without
compromising on x == x[0,:].
The Vector class can be tweaked further in how it is converted to an
array. It would be easy to produce a 1d-array -- and there's some
argument for consistency there.
I don't want you to feel that I steam-rollered your proposal, though,
so before I commit I'd like for someone to objectively take a look at
both approaches/patches and comment.
