72  Want: allow X *= Y, X /= Y, X += Y, X -= Y to mean what they do in C,  [GLK:3] evals & evecs for symmetric tensor[3,3] (requires sequences)

Nearly every Diderot program would be simplified by this.

76  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
