I haven't been following this thread closely and I haven't thought much 
about the details but I have no objection to trying to do a better job 
with handling numel and dimensions/indices generally.

Is there some way we can get the better behavior in a minimally invasive 

Even if it requires significant changes, maybe we should consider what 
the options are anyway.

What changes are needed to make octave_idx_type behave the way you way 
you want?
