My notes from Fairfax meeting...
Thought to be ready to vote.
JonL: Trivial, gratuitous.
RWK: Not trivial -- allows index computation. Hard to do this
in a portable, efficient way.
Allard: Says he has an NTH-VALUE macro for a portable system that he
uses (which exploits the computed index feature) and that it's
a gross kludge on Lucid in order to make it efficient.
KMP: Also, in principle, an implementation could make this more
efficient than the alternatives.
