Agreed, but I don't think I'll be able to get that done tonight.

While looking at it the last day or so, I started to think it might be better to use bison to parse array literals -- or is that a bad idea?

In any case, I'm planning to find the time to work on NULL array elements as soon as we branch 8.0 from head. At that time I'll also look at cleaning up array_in (and friends undoubtedly).
