I thought we narrowed the scope, and are talking about table _only_. Can
we keep it that way? I feel we are not going to make much progress as
long as we talk about everything in general and nothing in particular.

See... sometimes I do get what you are saying... ;-)

timestamp and status to fundamental types.
Yes, I agree. Though I am not so sure this is only one. Let's discuss
time only for now.
If you get time in a table, what is time going to be used for? Are you
going to need a timestamp, or are you going to need a number in some
unit (so that, again, you can stick it in whatever code and do something
Since the table is there mainly for physics applications - controls has
