Wouldn't you want to use a different means that the gpiod_array_*() API
to handle those cases? gpiod_array_*() is probably most useful to handle
bulk operations on a set of GPIOs that do essentially the same thing. If
you get and then need to index into that array to handle them all
differently then you don't gain very much.
