I've often wished for the ability to constrain a tale to hold just one
row, so I don't find that use case implausible at all.  As to whether
Jeff's use case is a cute hack or something that people will really
want to do, I think the jury's still out on that one.  But I don't
think we should make it not work unless we have a concrete reason, and
I haven't heard one yet.
