The advantage of row/col is for export functions. It can be easy converted in
a CVS db for more complex works or to change direction if you see that db
becomes too big. But i'm open to every solutions. In my custom db i use nested
blocks which are not easy converted in a row/column struct.

I think it could be modular: basic functions in the main script, additional
functions, also the same but more complex, in a second one compatible. About
velocity, i had problems until i started using hash! for indexes.

I think about dimensions. But it is a fixation of mine.
