In retrospect, the fix in bug 787667 is a bandaid; the scatter operation ultimately still iterates an incorrect number of times.

Furthermore, not all elements on ParallelArrays whose scalar length (the product of all its dimensions) should be undefined, as the bandaid in bug 787667 ended up causing. For instance,

  var p = new ParallelArray([2,0], function f() { return 0; });
  p[0] // should be an empty ParallelArray, not undefined

Pretty straightforward. I found a couple of things but no need to run through another cycle with the requested comment dele and as long as the possible can't-happen in inBounds() actually isn't.

I thought indices.length() <= dimensions.length() was an invariant of IndexInfo. Is that incorrect? If it is an invariant, then this should be an assertion instead.

This comment should be either more or less. As it stands, it's redundant with the name. In this case, I would say it's better to have no comment, because it's part of an internal API, it's pretty obvious what it does from the name, and if anyone wants to know more, the source of the function is very easy to read.
