  Actually NF is now computed directly from frameCount(field), not 
frameCount().    It's entirely up to the datasource to determine if it 
returns different values for each field, or a synchronized value.  Basically what you wrote is almost what we already do, with the exception that none of the sources actually behaves like the fields are desynchronized.
