For what it's worth, I was thinking the same thing when I was looking at
that table. Nearly *all* of them are completely inadequate at
explaining the finer details, and the user has to experiment to figure
out what actually happens. I seem to recall other similar examples in
our documentation for functions.

Personally I would like to see this fixed for all functions, not just
array functions. But I think that should be a separate patch.
