Re: UnaryFns & Tables

... snapshotting vs. 'hiding'...

Once someone has a use for composite tables...

I expect to be using composite tables quite a bit for handling
link end sets and other 'WordVector' type tables that don't have the charming
property.  That is, i expect to get back table for the entire end (if I ask
for it) and that table may not be contiguous.  Many regions of it will be
contiguous, but those are represented as real WordVectors composed into
a larger (non-contiguous) table.
  In this use, the issue of 'hiding' does not arise.  I don't have any
obvious uses (yet) for a composite table that 'hides' values depending
on the order of composition.
