I believe we are converging, and this is pretty much the same design as I
advocated.  It is similar to boost::ublas.

Storage is one concept.

Interpretation of the storage is another concept.

Numpy is a combination of a storage and interpretation.

Storage could be dense or sparse.  Allocated in various ways. Sparse can be
implemented in different ways.

Interpretation can be 1-d, 2-d.  Zero-based, non-zero based.  Also there is
question of ownership (slices).
