It's probably a good thing anyway. I think for 7.4 we should discuss, design,
and implement a collection of array functions (including these 2) in order to
make it easier to use arrays in PostgreSQL. Some functions should be moved
from contrib into the backend, and some need to be invented, as these two did.
Combined with PL/pgSQL returning sets, it would make arrays a much more
powerful and useful feature than they are today.
