      That's the problem, of couse....  I think we need to start with some
      uses of Multi-valued tables.  can anyone think of one?  I can't
      remember what I wanted them for...


   Let's try to get by without Multi-valued Tables, and without Bags.
   Bags can be replaced by a mapping from objects (the elements of the
   bag) to an integer (the number of times it is in the bag).  

I don't mind avoiding MultiValued tables, but I think I need bags, and
mapping from objectAsPositions to integers won't do.  Bags don't
procide the semantic problems of multi-valued Tables, do they?
