This is easy to implement.  The next question is should the datasource simply 
return the data in the table, or should it always return full-sphere vectors?

For example, let's say that you are comparing pixel data from 2 files.  One 
file is a "full-sphere" FITS file without an pixel number column, and the 
other is a "cut-sphere" FITS file with pixel number and signal columns.

hmmm, need to think about this some more.
