Subject Re: How to tackle Vector->NamedVector and back conversion

Put in other words, this would mean that there is either one or two output
formats but most importantly only one input format that would always read
NamedVectorWritables, possibly by inserting default names.  Due to
inheritance, those objects would serve both purposes.

That sounds good and simple.
