OK, I think 4 is the safe option for now.

Eventually, I want either 1 or 3. But:
- We don't agree yet on whether the right long-term solution would be for
[] to support vectorized indexing, outer indexing or neither.
- This will certainly cause some amount of churn, so let's save it for
later when vindex/oindex are widely used and libraries don't need to worry
about whether they're available or not they are available in all NumPy
versions they support.
