I believe there's been some handwaving in the past about extensible
approaches to subscripting, though I haven't got time to troll the
archives for it right now.

I'd be able to make use of that in my ndarray data type. It would also be nice to be able to add things like matrix types, sparse arrays, and variable size arrays (ie: list of lists), and subscripting is how you'd want to interface with all of those.

Presumably the point type is handled specially today, so that should be taken care off too.
