Keith, consider yourself bugged.
I agree that [...] should be the syntax for a growable array.
It's not as obvious to me what the syntax should be for an array of
fixed but unspecified length. Since a fixed array of specified length
is specified with a numeric subscript, perhaps [#] could be
used. Oh, but nickle already has # as a comment character and a
top-level command. Hmm...
