For me, this is an amazing feature that I discovered almost by accident (I tried it an it worked)! This creates a sort of three-dimensional object --- much like an array --- where the third dimension is of varying length. Wow.

I agree, though, that the result of 'print' on such an object is not crystal clear (but does make sense).
