Tell Feedback that you want this! I sent this request to Feedback on July 7, but I think they up the priority of enhancement requests if more people submit them. This feature would render most of the associative data structure conversation moot. We would still need for the hash! type to hash more than any-string! values. At least words, numbers and tuples should be hashed as well. Spread the word! Brian Hawley
