provided that X*Y, X/Y, X+Y, X-Y are already supported.
Nearly every Diderot program would be simplified by this.

75  so that V(x) = normalize((Vimg ⊛ ctmr)(x)).    For list of strands, save to long 1-D (or 2-D for non-scalar output) list

98      field#0(2)[] Vlen = |Vimg ⊛ bspln3|;

100      field#2(2)[] F = Fimg ⊛ bspln3;

104      field#0(2)[] Gmsq = ∇F•∇F;
105    to get a scalar field of squared gradient magnitude, which is simpler
106    to differentiate.  However, there is value in having these, even if
107    the differentiation of them is not supported (hence the indication
108    of "field#0" for these above)
