Issues of multidimensional storage and arithmetic have been around a long time and continue to arise. It is a shame that Mathworks has not developed a better way to address such a fundamental issue in applied computational work.
==============

Those are good insights, Paul, but why is it "a shame that Mathworks has not developed a better way", if "it is not clear that there is any way around this problem"? Aside from the fact, of course, that it leaves us without a solution? :-)
