I have the feeling that MyInt32-only support should be enough for the
NumArray subclass (it's a uniform array). However, the RecArray
subclass should be able to handle all existing types in addition to

Hehe, it will be production code with time-critical requirements. :)
However, it now seems to me that subclassing NumArray and RecArray
will be the right thing (not the easiest, though) to do.
Thanks a lot Colin and Todd for your helpful comments. I'll try to do
it and will tell you how it went. Bye!
