Thanks for pointing out "drop=FALSE", which I had overlooked!

Maybe it is reasonable to propose incorporating "drop" as one of the
things you can set with "options"? :--

     `options' allows the user to set and examine a variety of global
     ``options'' which affect the way in which R computes and displays
     its results.

Affecting the way in which R computes Z[c(T,F,F),c(F,T,T)] is just what
I would like to be able to do!

With thanks,
