Hmmm. Let's see if there is a way I can help to get what I want ....
Assuming that the answer to my question in the other thread is "packed
arrays aren't implemented anywhere yet", are any implementations close
enough that I can trade tests for implementation? Given my programming
style, creating a big pile of tests all at once won't really work (I'll
just end up creating a bunch of bad tests). But I could probably loop
over "add a couple tests, implement piece of feature, add a couple more
tests, implement another piece, ..." with someone.
It wouldn't be a particularly *fast* iteration, but at least there would
be some movement ....
