Yeah, it's a bit the wrong way around, for those coming from C, at least.
The idea is that for any T[] t, t[0] should behave as if a function
returning a T. So, for char[][] c, c[0] returns char[], which would then
be indexed by the next brackets. If index was the function:

c[0][1] => index( index( c, 0 ), 1 );
