*row(a,[A],i)

is $r_i \to a r_i$ on $\mathbf{A}$? Still out of the scope of the wiki? I'm inclined to agree with you, but no reason not to think out loud. Should I just put a link to e.g. this at the bottom of the page under "Also see", or something? --GFauxPas 12:58, 12 March 2012 (EDT)
As for *row(a,[A],i) for $r_i \to a r_i$, yecch. Without an understanding of the language it's been written in the casual reader would not understand it at all. It comes across as elitist. Whereas $r_i \to a r_i$ makes more intuitive sense.
