Subject Re: does anyone use the "row label bindings" stuff in Vector / Matrix?
Date Wed, 02 Nov 2011 18:31:35 GMT
The only thought I have about it is that there's a to-do to make that
stuff actually used and integrate into a wrapper class. I think it's
fine to kill it. If someone goes to all the trouble of re-implementing
it later it will not have been extra work; it probably was to be
redone anyway.
