First of all, I am sympathetic to being conservative
about the addition of attributes!

But the question about adding a.H about the possibility of improving
- speed (relative to adding a function of my own)
- readability (including error-free readability of others' code)
- consistency (across code bases and objects)
- competitiveness (with other array languages)
- convenience (including key strokes)

I agree that there are alternatives for the last of these.
