#' Subsets an array using a list with indices or names
#' @param X      The array to subset
#' @param index  A list of vectors to use for subsetting, or vector if along is given
#' @param along  Along which dimension to subset if index is a vector; default
#'               is last dimension; argument is ignored if X is a vector
#' @param drop   Remove unused dimensions after mapping; default: TRUE
#' @return       The subset of the array
