I'm with Olivier on this one, in part because I consider arrays to be a
useful and distinctive feature - maybe they'll be the next database fad
- after all Rdb/InterBase introduced the blob to the world. The other
part is that which says that removing features is dumb and annoys long
term users. Some time we should make arrays useful from procedures &
triggers - then they will really take off.
