My last email outlines my only concern, other than also avoiding changes
to KstVector and KstScalar. One thing I have thought about for a while is
caching the statistics in KstVector to make equations and other objects which
use them a bit faster. The performance hit is noticeable - I measured it to
be significant in the past. This would allow us to reduce the impact of
making scalars optional on KstVector too.

One big concern I have is that the I/O code should use KIO. I could never
even test the email functionality because the one in there just won't work
with my network setup (encryption, different ports, AUTH, etc). Likewise for
the HTTP code. It also makes us responsible for the security issues, whereas
KIO has been auditted and reauditted many times over.
