No, it doesn't. It means that the solution set, as far as it could be simplified, is not just some known finite amount of points. The system did find the analytic solution for you, but the analytic solution has a parameter for which you need to select values if you want individual points.

xs =
1  z
ys =
z
xs and ys are solutions for any complex z, found analytically. (And the result is the complete solution set.) This tells me much more than if I just got back ?[1, 0],? although I agree that the presentation is not particularly nice.
