Considering we still have * for Whatever, I don't see any problem with letting ** still mean MultiDim of Whatever. In fact, we've made it easier now. I was deleting it from S03 only because it's not an argumentless operator anymore, but a lowly term. Probably about time to revisit S09 again... Larry
