Attached is a patch to add support for array_length(anyarray), which

Why the heck would it complain if the lower bound isn't 1?

Because then you're free to assume that the first element is [1] and the
last one is [array_length()].  Which is what 99% of the code using
array_length(anyarray, int) does anyway.

Just to clarify, I mean that array_lower(.., 1) must be 1. Whatever that's called. "The lower bound of the only dimension of the array"?
