-Grid Literals
-	In every grid-accepting inlet, a list may be sent instead; if 
-	it consists only of integers, it will be converted to a 
-	one-dimensional grid. Else it may contain a single "#" sign and 
-	integers on both sides of it, where the ones to the left of it are 
-	fed as arguments to an imaginary [#redim] object and the one to the 
-	right of it are fed through that [#redim]. 
- 	In every grid-accepting inlet, an integer or float may also be sent; 
-	it will be converted to a zero-dimensional grid (a scalar). 
-Grid Protocol
-	a grid has an associated number type that defines what are the possible values for its elements 
-	(and how much space it takes). the default is int32. 
-	a single-dimensional grid of 3 elements (a triplet) is called dim(3). a 
-	three-dimensional grid of 240 rows of 320 columns of triplets is called 
-	dim(240,320,3). 
- 	There is a sequence in which elements of a Grid are stored and 
-	transmitted.  Dimension 0 is called "first" and dimension N-1 is 
-	called "last". They are called so because if you select a 
-	position in the first dimension of a grid, the selected part is of the same 
-	shape minus the first dimension; so in dim(240,320,3) if you select 
-	row 51 (or whichever valid row number), you get a dim(320,3). if you select 
-	a subpart two more times you get to a single number. 
- 	At each such level, elements are sent/stored in their numeric order, 
-	and are numbered using natural numbers starting at 0. This ordering usually 
-	does not matter, but sometimes it does. Most notably, [#import], [#export] and [#redim] care about it. 
-	On the other hand, order of dimensions usually does matter; this is 
-	what distinguishes rows from columns and channels, for example. 
-	Most objects care about the distinction. 
-	A grid with only 1 element in a given dimension is different from one 
-	lacking that dimension; it won't have the same meaning. You can use this 
-	property to your advantage sometimes. 
-	Zero-dimensional grids exist. They are called dim(). They can only contain 
-	a single number. 
 Picture Protocol
   This section is useful if you want to know what a picture is in terms of a grid.
   A picture is a three-dimensional Grid: 0:rows 1:columns 2:channels
