I take it you mean 2*p+1 here

No proper matrices, then, right?
Well... the semantics of accepting a general matrix for the first
variant are reasonably predictable: the column-wise concatenation
of the individual results (ACF1, PACF1, ACF2, PACF2, ...), but for
the second variant they'd be somewhat obscure. And if we were to
restrict the general matrix option to the first variant that would
be an instance of the sort of overloading of which I'm wary
(convoluted help entry required). But I'm open to persuasion. I
won't start work on this till we have something acceptably close
to a consensus.
