Description:
   Referencing empty array with "set -u" active throws unbound variable error.

Repeat-By:
  $ set -u
  $ declare -a array
  $ array=( )
  $ echo "address@hidden"
  bash: address@hidden: unbound variable

  For an empty "$@" this does not throw an "unbound" error, which seems to be 
an inconsistent behaviour to me.

Workaround:
  Use the infamous empty array work-around:
  $ echo ${argv[0]+"address@hidden"}
