Ok, I think what I will do is the following:

1.  Add INDEX and an entry for each map to the vector fieldlist.

2.  when readField is called for a map, do the simple thing and just return 
the table columns.  So this means that for cut-sphere files, the user will 
need to plot the data versus the pixel column.

For example, with full-sphere file:

kst -y 1 -y 2 fulldata.fits

and with cut-sphere:

kst -x 1 -y 2 -y 3 cutdata.fits 

This means that it will NOT be possible to mix cut and full files on the 
command line (you have to go to the datamanager).

Brendan (and others)- is this an acceptable solution?
