It is not a multi-dimensional array from the point of view of the
language spec. There is no such thing. Although, I agree that it exists
as a concept and in human speech.
What you seem to expect from the language is the acceptance of the
concept of multi-dimensional array as a first-class language construct.
You want the language to have a special multi-dimensional array
What I am saying is that since there is no such language construct,
coming up with a special syntax just to satisfy some of the users would
be an inconsistency in the language, which contradicts what everybody is
looking for (Scott, you, be, etc. :) )
