68    Want: allow X *= Y, X /= Y, X += Y, X -= Y to mean what they do in C,
69    provided that X*Y, X/Y, X+Y, X-Y are already supported.
70    Nearly every Diderot program would be simplified by this.
71
72    Want: ability to apply "normalize" to a field itself, e.g.
73      field#1(2)[2] V = normalize(Vimg ⊛ ctmr);
74    so that V(x) = normalize((Vimg ⊛ ctmr)(x)).
75    (For now, it would be okay for the differentability of V to be 0;
76    later we can teach Diderot the quotient rule of derivatives.)
77    Having this would simplify expression of standard LIC method, and
78    would also help express other vector field expressions that arise
79    in vector field feature exraction
80    Related to this and possibly simpler:
82      field#0(2)[] Vlen = |Vimg ⊛ bspln3|;
83    to get a scalar field of vector length, or
84      field#2(2)[] F = Fimg ⊛ bspln3;
85      field#0(2)[] Gmag = |∇F|;
86    to get a scalar field of gradient magnitude, or
87      field#2(2)[] F = Fimg ⊛ bspln3;
88      field#0(2)[] Gmsq = ∇F•∇F;
89    to get a scalar field of squared gradient magnitude, which is simpler
90    to differentiate.  Again, though, it would be such a benefit to have
91    these expressions, without any differentiability.  Hence my indication
92    of "field#0" for these above.
93
94    ability to declare a field in such a way so that probe
95    positions are *always* clamped to the support of "inside";
96    there are many cases where this is the sensible behavior
