Yes, I actually prefer my earlier suggestion, too.

Note that F numbers would handle both irregular tables and rationals, 
as well as complex integers (which could easily be added to the 
keywords). But it also handles functions of tuples, rationals, and 
Gaussians, none of which are readily handled by the approach under 
consideration. I would rather see a more difficult but more complete 
approach than a series of incremental advances that never reaches the 
same level.

I am available to help with programming such a feature.

(By the way, the F in F numbers stands for "function"; the idea being 
to represent as many types of discrete functions as we reasonably can.)

P.S. Thanks for the encouragement, Charles. I had almost given up on F 
numbers due to the general lack of response.
