Are you completely sure about that? I often find my self avoiding
loops-by-row by constructing vectors of which rows that fullfil a
condition, and then creating new vectors out of that vector. If you
elaborate on the problem, perhaps we could find a way to avoid the
loops altogether?

Mostly as a note to self, I wrote

understood by others too, but I'm not sure.
