For now, let me just take this to the practicalities of the
next release. If you have any interest in this, please give
me your views on these two points:
1) The isscalar() function. This was introduced about 4 years
ago but never documented. It has been broken (I think) for the
past 3 years or so, until I fixed it a few days back. Should
we drop this function? Keep it and document it? Or leave it in
undocumented limbo? (I don't like the last option myself.)
2) My recent modification to the inbundle() function, which
now returns an integer code for the type of the bundled data.
Keep this modification and document it? Or revert it? If we
keep it, I'm assuming we'd also want to keep and document the
new typestr() function, which turns the return code from
inbundle() into a comprehensible string such as "scalar".
