I was thinking along the same lines, the expectation is that linspace
returns a row vector, so shouldn't an array of start indices return a
corresponding number of rows? I don't feel really strongly about it
though, I'd probably personally prefer arrayfun or broadcasting to
give similar results to this extension anyway.
