I'm uncomfortable with the specific syntax of @a[()] because generated
code might sometimes want to generate an empty list, and special-casing
that sort of thing is always a pain (and fragile). An empty list of
subscripts should return an empty slice.
What this mark is really trying to say is "The definition of the indices
is coming from elsewhere". I'm wondering if these semtantics would make
it appropriate to use the yada operator here:
@foo[...] <== @bar;
