hello Hadley

thanks for this...

arot() in the magic package does this (which is an operation
frequently encountered in magic hypercubes)

That is a very good idea.  I have fought shy of this because the array
functionality of the magic package didn't seem to be enough to
justify a package of its own, but maybe that isn't true any more.
And I must say that the majority of user comments on the magic package
are in relation to functions such as arot() and adiag()  and apad()
and aplus() etc etc that are not specific to magic hypercubes.

Does the List have any comments?
