Well, that seems handy (esp. in a compiler). The array
update function seemed to be destructive though? 

So I guess my question is: do these arrays behave like
ets tables or like terms? For example, what happens if
array A is sent from P to Q, then updated in P -- will
Q see the update? 

My approximation would be: If A is "ets-like" then
yes, if A is "term-like" then no.

Best,
Thomas
