basically, we have to wait for the plugin architecture for custom datatypes... What I am designing is a series relationship mapping dialect function for liquid which maps indexes of two series. so you can say map [series-a 1 series-b 34] in this context, some datatypes will have subtypes, identifying their subvalues by name... somewhat like the date and time datatype can do.. thus an equivalent to value: mytime/hours you would first create the relationship with:
>> relationship: map [mytime 'hour value ]
and then can do any of the following: update relationship value update relationship mytime which will automatically (and speedilly) set the corresponding values within a series (or not, depending on the relationship) the map dialect should be able to detect series values and expect an index of some type when it finds one (including subtypes, like 'red 'green or 'blue for tuples, it is even possible that depending on the subtype used, some form of datatype conversion may occur, as an added benefit...). this is to allow liquids to patch to and from series directly... this is not yet done, but part of the eventual design. -MAx
