Which part of "very limited and only used by certain platforms" is wrong? OK,
maybe its half-and-half then (half the platforms use them, half don't) - that's
a long way from all platforms. The proposal is that 2.5 use bi_recs exclusively
for all platforms (something I agree with, by the way). The discussion is in the
detail of the implementation.

Well, you'd better get involved then - because the proposal is to change them
(or maybe "extend slightly in a backwards compatible way", would better describe
it) so if they're perfect for you now, you wouldn't want this :-) I think they
are too limited at the moment, but could be very useful if implemented properly.
benh's current proposal appears to give me all that I want (except for some
formal definition of "dimension"), so I support it. Cheers!
