Path notation (array-type access) works in some way on all series! types, math works on all number! types, an so on. It helps handle crossover. I say "in some way" on all series! types because the file! type handles it specially, creating a directory path instead of accessing the series in an array-like way, and binary! doesn't seem to allow setting, just getting.

I can vaguely remember someone did do an R2 one years ago. It generated a table, and saved it as an image, where <X column datatype> is a subset of <Y column datatype>, or something like that. -- <*>
