No, sorry, just [struct foo float x float y float z] used as the template 
of an array. I thought that we were talking about that...

I mean that with the struct foo above, and an array named foo using struct 
foo as its template, you could make a virtual array named bar, which would 
be an actual subpart of the array foo, using a different template, which 
would have to be some kind of substruct of the original template.
