Nearly every Diderot program would be simplified by this.

74  tensor fields: convolution on general tensor images  Want: non-trivial field expressions & functions:
76      field#0(2)[] Vlen = |Vimg ⊛ bspln3|;
77    to get a scalar field of vector length, or
78      field#2(2)[] F = Fimg ⊛ bspln3;
79      field#0(2)[] Gmag = |∇F|;
80    to get a scalar field of gradient magnitude, or
81      field#2(2)[] F = Fimg ⊛ bspln3;
82      field#0(2)[] Gmsq = ∇F•∇F;
83    to get a scalar field of squared gradient magnitude, which is simpler
84    to differentiate.  However, there is value in having these, even if
85    the differentiation of them is not supported (hence the indication
86    of "field#0" for these above)
