Hi Duncan, Nick,

At this point I am happy with the restriction of having one GEP index, simply because implementing multiple indices would take longer. In the next future I intend to add support for multiple indices.

presumably i8** would be a valid vector element type.  This means that
vector GEP may need more than one index.

Ciao, Duncan.
