That's the point. It's an important item for the TODO list.
Meanwhile, I'm happy I've been working in converting SETQs into initial
bindings for Series. Now it's confirmed it may make a big difference with
Note that I cannot get rid of all of them, like with this INCF. [BTW,
initializing the variable
with 0 and moving it just before the looping GO it's not as trivial as it may
look. It would
