   This is fine (and what I thought you were proposing all the time).  I
   would consider a patch if the existing 1-dim sequence and mapping
   types are not affected.

What do you mean by "not affected"? That their semantics stays
the same (no problem) or that their implementation needn't
be changed? I am not sure the latter is possible for C-types.

   > a[RubberIndex, 3].

   You could sneak this into the abovementioned patch as "a[::, 3]".

I like that idea...

If I had enough time, I'd look at this, but that might not happen
for a while. Any other volunteers?
