arrays don't have columns or rows. They have keys and values. So I'm not 
sure what you meant by that, but in any case if array_flip() isn't what 
you need then there is definitely another way to do it.

<rant type="pointless">
PHP has about 20 built-in little array_*() functions which IMO is mostly 
a waste of resources - like array_change_key_case() - huh?? why is that 
built into my interpreter? any compentent programmer could crib that 
function together in 1 minute...
