Ah, replying to myself.  I must be getting older.  

I see now that I didn't understand the layout of your original array.
Your my_data is really a (2*M*2) x N array.  That is, the even and odd
rows are interleaved.  This is still no problem.  The revised form is:

my_data = reform(my_data,    2,   x_data/4,           2, y_data, /overwrite)
;                         pair       row   pair of rows   array

data_sets_ev = my_data[0,*,0,*]
data_sets_od = my_data[0,*,1,*]

In this case it appears that you are only interested in the first of
each pair of elements, hence the [0,...].
