Quick question: this looks a lot like the "flexible array" mechanism
which went in around a year ago, and which is documented in
Documentation/flexible-arrays.txt. I'm not sure we need two of
these... That said, it appears that there are still no users of
flexible arrays. If your virtually-indexed arrays provide something
that flexible arrays don't, perhaps your implementation should replace
flexible arrays?

Thanks,

jon
