Well, I meant that you would select two things:
 * Base Type (List control) e.g. Integer
 * Array or Not (Radio Button) e.g. Non-Array
which would then result in a non-array Integer. So the radio button
alters the meaning of the item selected from the list box.

I understand what you mean also, which is a check-box to decide whether
to include the Array variants in the List or not.

Right now I guess I prefer my version, but that's no big surprise. ;-)

Whichever we pick, the main thing is to make this List and perhaps *all*
similar lists, if any others exist, have just a single alpha-sorted list
of items, so that people never get confused about whether items are
present or not.
