I have some code that could certainly be tidied up with the tensor()
function , but I wonder if "tensor" is the right name.
1) I would expect a function called "tensor" to construct a tensor object
rather than multiply two arrays together.
2) The arguments aren't tensors. They are arrays.
How fast is it? It would be _really_ nice if this were done efficiently
in C code.
 ar.yw in the "bats" package. I was just looking at this wondering how
to speed it up before rewriting the whole thing in C or Fortran.
