How about using general-array for what you now call arrays, and use
array for the fixed-arrays, then?  Move the generality up one level,
so to speak.

Police in many lands are now complaining that local arrestees are insisting
on having their Miranda rights read to them, just like perps in American TV
cop shows.  When it's explained to them that they are in a different country,
where those rights do not exist, they become outraged.  --Neal Stephenson
