This sounds very interesting. Would it make sense to later expand the
idea to allow an arbitrary number of dimensions? Maybe that doesn't
make sense if we're restricted to statically-known dimensions.
How would this relate to scalable vectors? Most of the time matrix
dimensions are not known statically. Would <n x m x float> be possible?
Do you have a prototype of this?
