`the road ahead`
```========================
SHORT TERM =============  (for curvature-based VR)
========================

vector fields: convolution on vector images
(image orientation not quite working)

IL support for higher-order tensor values (matrices, etc).
tensor construction [DONE]
tensor indexing [DONE]
tensor slicing
verify that hessians work correctly [DONE]

Outer products [DONE]

Add M dot v, v dot M, and M dot N [DONE]

Identity matrix [DONE]

Zero tensor [DONE]

trace [DONE]

extend norm (|exp|) to tensor[3,3] [DONE]

Matrix addition, subtraction, and scaling  [DONE]

Use ∇⊗ etc. syntax
syntax [DONE]
typechecking
IL and codegen

syntax
types: ty '{' INT '}'
value construction: '{' e1 ',' … ',' en '}'
indexing: e '{' e '}'

Infix dot product and cross product [DONE]

lerp on scalars and vectors [DONE]

Infix "^" operator for pow() [DONE]

Code generation support for 1D image data, such as RGBA transfer functions

==============================
other SHORT TERM =============  (including needed for LIC)
==============================

determinant ("det") for tensor[3,3]

extend norm (|exp|) to all tensor types

expand trace in mid to low translation

value-numbering optimization

Add type aliases for color types
rgb = real{3}
rgba = real{4}

==============================
MEDIUM TERM ================== (including needed for streamlines & tractography)
==============================

ability to emit/track/record variables into dynamically re-sized
runtime buffer

evals & evecs for symmetric tensor[3,3]

tensor fields: convolution on general tensor images

Use of Teem's "hest" command-line parser for getting
any input variables that are not defined in the source file

Save Diderot output to nrrd, instead of "mip.txt"
For grid of strands, save to similarly-shaped array
For list of strands, save to long 1-D (or 2-D for non-scalar output) list
For ragged things (like tractography output), will need to save both
complete list of values, as well as list of start indices and lengths
to index into complete list

==============================
other MEDIUM TERM ============ (needed for particles)
==============================

run-time birth and death of strands

"initially" supports lists

"initially" supports lists of positions output from
different initalization Diderot program

spatial data structure that permits strands' queries of neighbors

proper handling of stabilize method

test/vr-kcomp2.diderot: Add support for code like

(F1 if x else F2)@pos

This will require duplication of the continuation of the conditional (but we should only
duplicate over the live-range of the result of the conditional.

==============================
other MEDIUM TERM ============
==============================

want: warnings when D (and likely I) is declared as a
variable name (now get confusing error messages now)

support for Python interop and GUI

==============================
LONG TERM ====================
==============================

Better handling of variables that determines the scope of a variable based on its actual use,
instead of where the user defined it.  So, for example, we should lift strand-invariant variables
to global scope.  Also prune out useless variables, which should include field variables after the
translation to mid-il.

co- vs contra- index distinction

add ":" for tensor dot product (contracts out two indices
instead of one like •), valid for all pairs of tensors with
at least two indices

some indication of tensor symmetry
(have to identify the group of index permutations that are symmetries)

dot works on all tensors

outer works on all tensors

Einstein summation notation

"tensor comprehension" (like list comprehension)

Python/ctypes interface to run-timez

======================
BUGS =================
======================

test/zslice-k1k2.diderot
If we allow "-∇F@pos" we should allow "-∇(∇F)@pos",
but this currently causes:
uncaught exception Fail [Fail: Error in compiling zslice-k1k2.diderot]
raised at driver/main.sml:31.39-31.76

test/zslice-k1k2.diderot (and other programs)
As programs are getting more complicated, the annoyance and confusion
caused by allowing variables to be redeclared is getting higher!
GLK sees no valid purpose for redeclaring a variable, even if the type is consistent.
In zslice-k1k2.diderot, if the green image declaration is:
field#0(2)[] G = imgG ⊛ tent;
and the geometry tensor is later declared
tensor[3,3] G = (P•H•P)/|g|;
that redeclaration causes no problems, but then usage of G the field
G@kk
causes:
[zslice-k1k2.diderot:52.28-32] Error: type error for binary operator "@"
expected:  (field#'diff0101('dim0100)'shp00FF * tensor['dim0100])
but found: (tensor[3,3] * vec2)

test/mip-cam.diderot:
// generated C code looks like "(float)p_ui_0--0.5e0f"
//real rayU = 2.0*camUmax*(real(ui) - -0.5)/real(imgResU) - camUmax;

test/vr-kcomp.diderot:
// HEY (scoping BUG): the strand parameters (e.g. ui, vi) ...

test/zslice2.diderot:
// but is this not valid syntax for creating field in one shot?
//field#2(3)[] F = (load("../data/zimg112.nrrd")) ⊛ bspln3;
// It is valid syntax, but there is a bug in the conversion from HighIL to MidIL

test/zslice2.diderot:
// HEY (bug) bspln5 leads to problems ...
//  uncaught exception Size [size]
//    raised at c-target/c-target.sml:47.15-47.19
//field#4(3)[] F = img ⊛ bspln5;
