/**
Provides utility methods for working with arrays. Additional array helpers can
be found in the `collection` and `array-extras` modules.

`Y.Array(thing)` returns a native array created from _thing_. Depending on
_thing_'s type, one of the following will happen:

  * Arrays are returned unmodified unless a non-zero _startIndex_ is
    specified.
  * Array-like collections (see `Array.test()`) are converted to arrays.
  * For everything else, a new array is created with _thing_ as the sole
    item.

Note: elements that are also collections, such as `<form>` and `<select>`
elements, are not automatically converted to arrays. To force a conversion,
pass `true` as the value of the _force_ parameter.

@class Array
@constructor
@param {Any} thing The thing to arrayify.
@param {Number} [startIndex=0] If non-zero and _thing_ is an array or array-like
  collection, a subset of items starting at the specified index will be
  returned.
@param {Boolean} [force=false] If `true`, _thing_ will be treated as an
  array-like collection no matter what.
@return {Array} A native array created from _thing_, according to the rules
  described above.

Dedupes an array of strings, returning an array that's guaranteed to contain
only one copy of a given string.

This method differs from `Array.unique()` in that it's optimized for use only
with arrays consisting entirely of strings or entirely of numbers, whereas
`unique` may be used with other value types (but is slower).

Using `dedupe()` with values other than strings or numbers, or with arrays
containing a mix of strings and numbers, may result in unexpected behavior.
